JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio -- The end of summer is not something kids typically look forward to, but you wouldn't have known that by the excitement in Steubenville on Thursday.
A total 907 bags of school supplies were handed out at the Urban Mission’s Back to School Giveaway. Huntington Bank donated backpacks and a number of other organizations provided food, music and games.
"It gives me great pleasure to watch the smiles on these kids' faces when I hand them the backpacks,” Huntington Bank’s Maryann Homic said.
"This time of year can be tough for parents and anyone who has a child in school, so if we can help in any way, whether it's a book back or extra school supplies, we want to make sure we can do that,” the Urban Mission’s Ashley Steele said.
This year’s giveaway grew substantially. Last year 650 bags were handed out.
