MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — We may be in the grips of July heat, but thousands will get back to school in about a month. Volunteers at Harvest Church in Mobile held one of the area’s first back-to-school supply giveaways Saturday. Kids and parents were invited to pack their own assortment of supplies at a family event. Kids got a backpack, school supplies, and a free sack lunch to boot.
In addition to the supplies a group called “Samaritan’s Feet” also distributed hundreds of pairs of shoes and hygiene kits to the families that attended.
