From the Sentinel:
Hope Station held its annual Back to School Bash Tuesday night and gave away 55 backpacks full of school supplies.
Jim Washington, executive director of Hope Station, said the organization requires kids to sign up for one of its programs – such as the homework club or Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts – in order to get a backpack.
The supplies for the backpacks were donated by area organizations.
