Everything is more expensive this year, including school supplies, said Sonna Silva, who is a mother of four. She took her children to the Fairfield Community Services Foundation’s free Back-to-School Backpack and Food Giveaway on Saturday.
The children – Paula, Lucy, Ismeale and Elizabeth – all received backpacks again this year. The family was also given two bags of food.
“This is a great support and a blessing,” Silva said.
