The fifth annual backpack giveaway will take place on August 13, 2016 at the 34th Street Mall at Division Avenue in Wyoming. It begins at 11:00 am with food and family friendly activities.
Last year more than 3,000 families came out for family fun and to collect about 1,000 backpacks. This event is free with entertainment to bring the community together to celebrate education during one of the last weeks of summer.
