Backpack And School Supply Giveaway

Two Triad-based organizations are giving away free backpacks and other school supplies at separate events this weekend.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Just like that, summer is almost over and it's time for students to start heading back to class.

We know book bags and school supplies can be expensive, so here are a few community organizations offering free help!

The Last Dons in Reidsville is giving away 1,400 backpacks this Saturday, August 3 at its 5th Annual School Supply Giveaway.

The group is also giving away food, gift cards, hair cuts and hairstyles for kids so they're ready to head back to class.

The giveaway starts at 10 a.m. at Reidsville High School, tomorrow, Saturday, August 3rd.

If you can't make it to Reidsville Saturday, Victory Church is giving away school supplies at its Back to School Cookout on Sunday, August 4th.
