TIFTON, GA (WALB) - The start of the next school year is just around the corner. Tift County Public Health held its 5th annual back to school event on Friday.
Kids were able to fill backpacks with pencils, folders, markers and more.
School supplies were donated by area partners and nurses were on hand to make sure kids are ready for their first day of school.
Public health nurse Yolunda Lewis says, "It turned into a big event that we want to try and do every year. It's to give away school supplies and also offer immunizations and EED's."
Local health departments can help insure your child is up to date on immunizations required by public schools.
