Mission Change hands out school supplies to Albany kids

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The first day of school is just around the corner and lots of organizations are helping families get ready.

Volunteers with Mission Change handed out back packs and other school supplies for families. They host the event every year in the Macintosh Housing area. 

Besides school supplies they also gave out some tasty treats.

"It's just a wonderful time everyone says that Christmas is a wonderful time of the year but July is the best time of the year because we love preparing kids for school," La Donna Urik said. 

 Nearly 200 students received some new back to school gear.
