(WMC) - The St. Andrew AME Church congregation will distribute brand new tennis shoes and school supplies to less fortunate children in the Memphis and Shelby County area.

The congregation donated the funds to buy more than 1,800 new pairs of shoes for the giveaway. Durham School Services is also partnering with the church to pass out 1,400 new backpacks and notebooks.

A school bus will be on site to provide bus safety tours to children and their parents.

In order to receive shoes and supplies, parents must bring their children with them to the event. To find the right shoe sizes, parents are encouraged to show up to the event sooner rather than later.

Here is the event information:

When: Saturday, August 2 from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Where: St. Andrew Community Life Center, located at 1472 Mississippi Boulevard.
