August will be recognized by the county as “Child Support Awareness Month” at the county Board of Supervisors meeting on Aug. 18.
The San Luis Obispo County Department of Child Support Services will celebrate the month with community events.
Child Support Services will have a booth at the San Luis Obispo Farmers Market Aug. 27 from 6 to 9 p.m. Staff will give guidance to anyone interested in opening a case for child support services. The department also is working with United Way on their “Stuff the Bus” campaign, which gives school supplies to children in need.
The state slogan for the month this year is “Giving them roots to reach for the sky.”
