DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. (WFIE) - Dawson Springs Schools prepared students for their first day back to school with a giveaway.

This year, the Dawson Springs Rotary Club provided $10,000 worth of school supplies for families, allowing them to pick up items for absolutely no charge.

A Madisonville woman donated 600 backpacks to the school resource office.

The back-to-school event was held to assist families with financial struggles, following the December 10 tornado clean-up.

“There have been so many people that have opened their hearts, opened their pocketbooks up, to love us and to take care of us,” said Amanda Scott, Dawson Springs parent. “It’s a wonderful feeling to come in and know that you have that, that community backing.”

School officials hope the supplies will last all year.

Any extra supplies can be found at the school resource office.

Dawson Springs students head back to the classroom on Wednesday.
