Paddock Mall offering free backpacks to students on August 6

The Paddock Mall will be handing out free backpacks to local students during its ‘Back 2 School Bash’ event on Saturday, August 6.

The event is being held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Paddock Mall, which is located at 3100 SW College Road in Ocala.

During the event, the mall’s team will be in attendance to hand out up to 3,000 backpacks to students and their families. No registration is required.

Parents or guardians are encouraged to bring their children to the event to receive a free backpack. If any families request a backpack without their children being present, those families will each receive one backpack.

The mall is also partnering with local nonprofit organizations for a School Supply Drive, and donations will be accepted through August 6 in the mall’s Center Court.
