Memphis organizations help over 600 children Sunday

(WMC-TV) - Several Mid-South organizations are helping Memphis kids head back to the classroom.

Students had a chance to have some fun while receiving free school supplies at Douglas Community Park.

One organizer cited growing up in the area as the reason she knew what the community needed.

"I actually grew up in this area and I really saw that there was a need to bring this type of activity to this community. To make sure these children start the school year with everything they need. This will give them an inspiration to go to school," stated Lamecia Goode.

12 different clubs sponsored Sunday's event. An estimated 600 students received free supplies.
