School supply giveaways ‘a blessing’ for Mid-South families


Hundreds of thousands of kids went back to school this week and others will be back soon too. Some of those families can’t afford expensive supplies. Back-to-school events were held to help fill that void across the City of Memphis. It started with an idea. “One of my thoughts was that we could have a school supply drive,” Lara Scott, a student at UTHSC said. “We were able to give out a whole bunch of backpacks,” Scott said. Five hundred of them were filled with supplies for students in our area.
