Summer is officially over and school will be starting before you know it.  Many kids are still unprepared for lack of the proper school supplies.  Well Bob Mills plans on changing that by offering free backpacks.

With the economy the way it is, simple things like pencils and crayons are a tough demand to meet.  Many families in the Amarillo area are struggling to get their kids the proper school supplies.

School is starting this Monday and if you are still in need of some supplies for your kids, your in luck.  This Saturday Bob Mill Furniture will be helping out the community.  500 backpacks filled with school supplies will be distributed to local kids.

The event will take place at the furniture store, 6050 I-40 West, from 11am to 1 pm.  It is first come first serve, so get there early.  Look for the Blake truck.

This is all to help the kids of the community start school prepared!
