Church gives away hundreds of backpacks stuffed with school supplies

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A local church is giving away more than 250 backpacks stuffed with school supplies just in time for the upcoming school year.

Town Center Worship is hosting its annual Backpack Giveaway on Sunday.

In addition to a wide selection of backpacks, supplies ranging from notebooks to pens, paper, scissors and markers have been donated by a local business donor as well as members of the TWC congregation.

The filled backpacks will be given to previously-registered children that are accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The church also hosts several giveaways and outreach programs throughout the year. Since 2010, TWC has worked hard to help change dozens of lives throughout the city of Cincinnati.

The giveaway will be held at Town Worship Center located at 1125 Towne Street at noon.
