64 kids receive brand new backpacks through Energy Express

BLUEFIELD W.Va (WVVA) -- Kids at the Wade Center received brand new backpacks filled with school supplies Friday through the summer program "Energy Express."

An anonymous donor gave enough money to purchase 64 backpacks and fill them with pencils, paper, notebooks, markers, and all the rest of the school supplies needed for a successful start to the school year.

This is the 17th year Energy Express was able to give all the kids in the program free book bags.

Parents say it takes the stress off of them having to buy everything the kids need because school supplies are very expensive these days.
