Students ready for class after Back to School Bash

Daviess County students are headed back to school in a few weeks and kids are already getting supplies.

Christian Outreach Church in Owensboro held their Back to School Bash Friday afternoon.

The church says they put together 650 bags of school supplies and gave away most of the bags within the first couple hours of the event. They say the school supplies they gave away were donated to the church by shoppers leaving Walmart.

"We had people waiting in line. Well, in their vehicles since 11:00 and we weren't scheduled until 2:00. That tells you what the need is there," Pastor Carolyn Hill said.

Christian Outreach Church says last year they gave away 500 bags of school supplies to kids in need.
