School supplies handed out at Veterans Coliseum

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Backpacks filled with school supplies were handed out to families in need at Veterans Coliseum on Sunday.

Kids could also get new clothes for the school year at their resale shop.

While parents were busy sorting through clothes, kids played on a bounce house, went through an obstacle course, and dunked their friends in a dunk tank.

"We have 131 signed up for backpacks, 131 children, which is wonderful for our first time. So people start signing up now for next year, go ahead and get your reservation, we hope to have a bigger turnout next year," said Andrea Stafford, Veterans Coliseum operations manager.

Food was also available at low prices.
