Hundreds of backpacks and school supplies distributed to Ardmore kids

The Grace Center of Southern Oklahoma along with the Ardmore Young Professionals distributed over seven hundred backpacks today to kids going back to school soon.
Executive director of the Grace Center, Lesley Dvorak, says it was made possible by all those who donated all the school supplies during the annual AYP backpack drive.

"It just kind of gives the parents a jumpstart and gives the kids a backpack and its just always a great day. We always have a lot of volunteers for this program. It's just great to see the kids faces light up when they get a backpack and, you know, it just takes such a load of the parents," said Dvorak.

Dvorak says they will finish distributing tomorrow morning at the Grace center.
