DETROIT (WXYZ) - The community is coming together to make sure kids in need have their supplies for back to school.
It is happening at an event from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. outside The Tower Center on Grand River in Detroit. More than 200 backpacks will be given away, as well as school supplies and gift certificates from Forman Mills for school uniforms.
There will also be entertainment for the family including inflatables, food, and hip hop music.
People were asked to pre-register for the school supplies, but there will be some give-a-ways available for those who did not.
The event is being put on by Detroit IMPACTS. To find out how you can help or benefit from future events put on by this organization, contact John Cromer at firstname.lastname@example.org .
