MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A group of Memphis kids received new backpacks jam-packed full of school supplies Friday.

It was a result of the YMCA of Memphis and the Mid-South’s Y on the Fly program.

The Y on the Fly van, jam packed with the supplies, made it to Peabody Elementary and John P. Freeman Optional School on Friday morning where the kids were surprised in the middle of class.

Shhh! It’s a surprise! We’re giving away supplies-stuffed backpacks to the kids at John P. Freeman Optional School!
