Nonprofit packs bookbags for 8th annual back-to-school drive

Posted: Updated:

A nonprofit organization hosted its eighth annual back-to-school drive in Orange.

Last year, the Michelle's Foundation gave away over 1,000 packed bookbags and prizes to local families.

This year, the organization says it is looking to do the same.

"It's more than just giving out bookbags, it's trying to get the community out to encourage them to be a part of their experience in going back to school,” says Orange Mayor Dwayne D. Warren.

The event was held at the corner of Central and Lincoln avenues.
