ALBANY, GA (WALB) - With a theme of "One nation under God" several groups had one goal today to reach out to kids in Dougherty County.

More than 60 kids showed up for a back to school bash youth explosion. They enjoyed live entertainment, free food and plenty of games. Organizations also donated school supplies for every child at the event.

"We went out and pounded the pavement, we passed out over 300 flyers and just was out in the community letting them know hey we are about trying to help the children so i believe children are the future," said Pastor William Rose of the Lovers Lane Christian Center.

Event Organizers say they still have plenty of school supplies and food left over from the event for those in need.
