Backpack Giveaway Benefits Local Students

School is already in session, but some kids still don't have backpacks.

That will change thanks to a backpack giveaway Monday in Petoskey.

Volunteers with AT&T handed out the bags as part of their “Tools for Learning” campaign.

They brought 80 backpacks for Petoskey and surrounding schools like Pellston, Boyne City and East Jordan.

Harbor Springs and Inland Lakes Schools will also benefit.

The bags include supplies like paper, pencils and folders.

AT&T is traveling the state, delivering around 13-hundred bags in all.
