Flavia Dozolo, left, Danilson Dozolo and Alda Lubota share a laugh Wednesday while organizing school supplies at The Store Next Door in Lewiston. The volunteers are preparing about 300 donated backpacks of school supplies that will be handed out during the Lewiston Public Schools summer outreach event Thursday at the former Gov. James B. Longley Elementary School on Birch Street from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Information about the upcoming school year, food, balloon animals, face painting and a touch-a-truck event will be held during the back-to-school gathering. The school supplies that will be handed out were all donated by community members, said Katie Krantz, a staff member at The Store Next Door. The nonprofit organization supports housing-insecure youth. Daryn Slover/Sun Journal
