Back-to-School rally helping students with new school supplies
Posted by Kenny Douglass, Digital Content Producer - bio | email
Some students in Evansville will go back to school on Wednesday with some new school supplies, even some new shoes given away by the Black Expo.
The 19th Back-to-School Rally started Saturday afternoon at St. John's United Methodist Church, but the line formed early.
Organizers say that is not unusual, but there was one big change this year.
"In lieu of having lunch, we tried to buy more school supplies cause we really don't want to leave anybody out this year so we kind of skipped lunch and took those funds and bought more school supplies," says William Garrett.
Organizers say they hope to serve between 300-400 students this year.
