Dozens of volunteers stuffed backpacks full of supplies for kids in need on Tuesday.
Employees with KPMG, an audit and tax company, and United Way of the Midlands volunteered for Big Brothers Big Sisters today.
They filled backpacks with supplies like notebooks, folders and crayons.
All of these supplies will be given out to kids at the back-to-school picnic this weekend.
“We want to make sure that kids are going back to school, not only with a mentor, which is what we do. One-to-one mentoring, but also with new school supplies so that they can feel their best to head back to classes in the fall,” Elizabeth Hansen, the chief development officer for the organization, said.
