Kids Health Alliance, a local Pediatric medical practice, distributed over 500 backpacks to local students through their annual Drive Through Back-to-School Supply Giveaway this past Saturday.
Along with their sponsors, the Kids Health Alliance filled the backpacks with age-appropriate supplies including colored pencils, crayons, markers, highlighters, rulers, USB drives, erasers, loose leaf paper, notebooks, folders, and books.
“Our community is really awesome at coming together for good causes. We had tremendous support from many local organizations and individuals who donated funds, supplies, and their time. We are extremely grateful to them, and so are the families in our community who picked up supplies – they were all very thankful and appreciative” said Sonda Eunus, Event Coordinator.
