Kids Surprised With New Backpacks Filled With Supplies
Some kids were gathered for a special school assembly, but they didn’t know why. It turned out to be a major giveaway. Everyone at the John Barry Elementary School in Philadelphia got a brand new backpack filled with supplies that they'll need for the rest of the school year, including notebooks, scissors, crayons and post-its. Dave Smith is executive director of the Kids in Need Foundation, which is donating backpacks to more than 300,000 students nationwide this holiday season.
