The University will hold a School Supply Giveaway on Saturday, Aug. 27 of items that would have been distributed at the Back to School Bonanza, which was canceled due to weather conditions. School supplies will be distributed Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the first floor lobby of Leahy Hall, which is located at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Linden Street.
