A back to school giveaway was held in Jacksonville at John Alexander Gym on Thursday. Backpacks filled with supplies were given to Jacksonville ISD students.
Volunteers spent all week preparing for the fair, including The Jacksonville Rotary Club, who provided the backpacks for this year’s event.
“It just takes everyone to come together, the community in particular, just making sure we equip the kids with the needs that they have to have a great school year,” Oscar Medina, said.
More than $18,000 in supplies were given away. To learn more about preparation for the fair click here.
