Over 800 students are now ready for the school year to begin.
Eastside Community Ministry handed out their backpacks put together through their "Tools for School" program.
"I think it's incredible. Obviously the number requested every year grows. It's a program that's needed in our community and I think that it is great that we're able to use so many partners and use so many volunteers and fill that need," said Youth Program Director Joey Osborn.
