LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – As parents receive classroom assignments and school supply lists, local organizations took time out to help ease the stress of supply shopping with a backpack giveaway.

Volunteers from LG&E took part in Operation Backpack along with The Lord’s Kitchen and Feed the City to distribute 3,200 backpacks filled with school supplies.

The backpacks were handed out on a first come, first serve basis.

The Lord’s Kitchen and Feed the City also used buses to transport children to the drive who were unable to get there themselves.
