Backpack giveaway at 2nd Annual "Back to School Jam"

LAWTON, Okla._A local church hosted their 2nd Annual 'Back to School Jam' for the Lawton-Fort Sill community, Friday.

The Wind of Change Ministries provided students and their families with free food, live music, fun activities and best of all, free backpacks for kids of all ages returning to school. The backpacks were also full of essential school supplies. Volunteer Samantha Phillips says they hope to help make back to school season a breeze, for parents.

“We know times are hard for everyone so we just want to ease some of the burden. And also do it in a loving and positive atmosphere,” Phillips said.

Local businesses helped by providing several items and services for the event. Organizers say they were able to give away over 200 backpacks, Friday.
