Pair of Local Groups Giving Away Backpacks Full of School Supplies

July 26, 2013

Two events are set for tomorrow to benefit children in need of school supplies for the upcoming school year.

Kicking off tomorrow at 10:00am will be Concord United Methodist Church.

They plan on giving away 90 bags of school supplies for children between the ages of five and thirteen, and will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The church is located at the corner of State Route 77 and Harmony Road.


Later that day, beginning at noon, the Northeast Georgia Eagles M/C will hold their 10th Annual Back to School event.

Stuffed back packs will be given to students currently enrolled in school, and the student must be present to receive a backpack.

The group also plans to hold a drawing for two iPads, which you do not have to be present to win.

That event will take place at the Burke Street Gym in Elberton, Georgia.
