It’s back to school season and a local group is giving away backpacks filled with supplies.

Volunteers handed out 250 backpacks Sunday to kids of all ages at Bridgeport High School.

A group of educators known as Kare and Serve organized the event.

“These backpacks were prepared by donations that we received monetary donations and materials from people in our church, friends, family,” organizer Ellenore Pringle said.

Students and their families were also treated to hot dogs and refreshments.

Organizers said it's their mission to help those in need in our community and they're always looking for more volunteers and donations so they can keep on giving back.

“So that we can just keep giving to people in our community through various service projects,” Pringle said.

Kare and Serve is planning more backpack giveaways, including one next week in Millington.
