United Ways Hosts Back to School Giveaway

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN, Tenn.- When the United Way put out a call to pack the bus with school supplies, the response was overwhelming.

The United Way of Williamson County hosted "The Big Backpack Giveaway" at Liberty Elementary school in Franklin Saturday. Students big and small, picked up bags loaded with all the essentials needed to get the school year off to a good start.

"In these hard economic times, we find that if we can help in just a little way in giving parents and children the tools they need for school, then that's going to be a good thing," said Kristi Sylvester, Grace Works.

Anyone who missed Saturday's event will have another opportunity next Saturday at Fairview High School.
