What’s better than getting a free backpack for the first day of school? A backpack filled with school supplies.
Such is the reward for more than 700 Franklin Middle School students when school begins next Wednesday.
The backpacks will be stuffed with various schools supplies — the kind of supplies students will need throughout the school year.
The backpack project is being sponsored by Bridgeway Church.
“It’s one of those projects where it doesn’t matter who you are,” said Scott Nalley, pastor at Bridgeway Church. “Each student will get a backpack.”
