Posted 5:27 PM 8/4/2012 : One thousand backpacks given away at Pueblo church
One-thousand backpacks were given away Saturday to students in Pueblo at First Baptist Church.
The backpacks were given away on a first come, first served basis, and they went to students in Pueblo City Schools and District 70.
Along with getting a free backpack full of school supplies, they also celebrated with a Back-to-School Bash, including games, food, and prizes.
The parents say they are very grateful since school supplies can be expensive.
