REIDSVILLE, N.C. -- As summer break starts to wind down, it's time to for families to start thinking about heading back to school.

A Rockingham County non-profit wants to make sure you have all the supplies you need. The Last Dons organization has collected 1,200 backpacks and they're ready to hand them out to you, for free this Saturday, August 4, 2018.

Katrina Harrison started the giveaway so families with tight budgets wouldn't have to worry about spending money on school supplies.

Harrison says the lines get long so come early and pack some patience. Everyone in line will get a backpack while supplies last. The only rule is that students need to be present.
