The Ready to Learn Fair for children in need in the Clover Park, University Place and Steilacoom school districts is set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Lochburn Middle School, 5431 Steilacoom Blvd., Lakewood.

The fair is sponsored by Caring for Kids and the City of Lakewood to assist children in those school districts who qualify for free and reduced-price school lunches.

The event includes used clothing distribution, school supplies, haircuts, immunizations (bring your child’s current immunization record), books, dental and vision screening, and more.
