The Salvation Army Davis Community Center invited the community to their "Back 2 School Bash and Open House" event on July 31.
The open house offered free backpacks and school supplies.
The event also included free COVID-19 vaccinations, haircuts, nail trimming, and giveaways. Organizers also offered educational booths, jumpers, and an opportunity to sign up for indoor soccer, music programs, and more.
Visitors were also given the opportunity to enjoy food and shop through the yard sale that will support the Salvation Army's youth programs.
At least 300 people came to today's event, along with about 30 volunteers.
The Salvation Army says it wants to keep providing families in need with stuffed backpacks, and is asking for any donations.
