SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – Springfield Public Schools (SPS) is holding their largest Back to School Bash at the Springfield Expo Center on Saturday from 9:30 am to 3 pm
Nonprofits such as Convoy of Hope donate many groceries and clothing for this event.
“I think we have about 5,000 bags of groceries here, generally speaking, it’s roughly about two per family,” Jason Bachman, Convoy of Hope Community Engagement Director, said. “I want to say we have about 6,000 socks as well.”
Bachman said providing food and clothing items like this is much needed, especially during this time.
“Prices for working families on fixed incomes trying to hold a couple of jobs, just the food budget for them can be a struggle,” Bachman said.
Stephen Hall, the SPS spokesperson, said now is the perfect time to give back.
