Cleen Sweep janitorial service is sponsoring a school supply giveaway from noon to 3 p.m. Aug. 11 in the parking lot of its headquarters at 112 N. Circle Drive.

The event also will feature drawings for prizes and free hot dogs, chips and drinks. The goal is to provide free school supplies to 100 children, said Cleen Sweep owner Karen Jones.

The company is seeking donations of supplies as well as sponsors for a "back-to-school shopping spree" for 10 winning children at 4 p.m. at Walmart.

“I am reaching out to local companies and businesses to help assist by way of a generous donation or by being a shopping spree sponsor for a child,” Jones said.

Donations can be sent to 112 N. Circle Drive, Suite A, Rocky Mount NC 27804 or dropped off at the Rocky Mount Area Chamber offices at the downtown train station.
