About 115 kids showed up at the Kempner VFW School Supply Drive over the weekend.
Free backpacks and other school supplies were handed out, and there was a free lunch and the children were able to use fire hoses and tour the fire trucks.
The Kempner VFW hosts 3 other free kids’ events throughout the year. Halloween will be the next event, with a haunted house and games and food; then a Christmas event with Santa and gifts; and Easter with Easter dinner and egg hunts.
All of the events are free.
