ALBANY, GA (WALB) – School has started, but it's never too late to help students who need school supplies.

Friendship Baptist Church normally holds a back to school drive for students who are part of the church.

This year decided to leave the four walls of the church and find students in the community who needed paper and other essentials.

Members put together about 130 bags they gave out to students on Sunday.

"It was very nice seeing the reaction on people's faces, when we told them it was free. We are just doing it because of our love and we wanted to reach out to the community," said Carla Hunter, Youth Director.

On a hot and humid weekend the church threw in an added bonus for anyone who showed up, free ice cream.
