School Supplies Loaded Up
Backpacks filled with school supplies will be delivered this weekend to a few schools and a local charity.
People at God's Filling Station in Asheville stuffed 400 of them last night with all the supplies needed for class.
This is the 12th year for the event. The pastor says it's a valuable lesson in the joy of giving.
Pastor Steve Brockwell, God's Filling Station, "just to see the look on families, a mother and father that's struggling, or just a single mother, that's just hard to make ends meet, to be able to get a book bag that their child wouldn't get, it's worth it all."
The backpacks will be delivered to Johnson, Pisgah, and Woodfin Elementary, as well as Eblen Charities.
