For the third consecutive year, Red Apple Market is hosting its Back to School Backpack Giveaway. This year’s event gets underway at the Red Apple Promenade 23 south parking lot (2301 South Jackson Street) on Saturday, Aug. 26 at 9 a.m., and will include a community barbecue.

Last year’s backpack giveaway, sponsored by Red Apple and World Vision, saw an enormous turnout, with hundreds of children receiving backpacks filled with schools supplies to help them be their best in the classroom.

In addition to receiving backpacks and supplies, kids this year will also receive healthy snacks for summer.
