ABC's Expensive For Many Families

Decatur – Bells will begin ringing in another school year next week.  But for many families the ABC's are more than they can afford.

Molina Healthcare is donating 300 backpacks to be distributed to low income families through the Homework Hangout.  Hundreds of people waited patiently in the summer heat Friday waiting for their chance to get a backpack.

“We're going to be putting school supplies into the backpacks and we're going to be handing them out first come first served,” Stefan Dawson of Homework Hangout told WAND's Doug Wolfe.  “Kids are going back to schools.  And so, we want to help the families out by doing this for the families.”

Kids and their families were also treated to a summer bash that included games, music, basketball, jump rope and lunch.
