It's a tradition that dates back 14 years and helps hundreds of students get ready to go back to school in Evansville.

Organizers at Forest Hills Baptist Church are expecting a huge crowd this weekend.

That's why they literally have room after room full of school supplies.

On Sunday, August 6, parents can bring their kids to Helfrich Park STEM Academy on Maryland St. to get some basic 'back to school' items and even a fresh haircut.

Organizers said there are several churches are involved in the event and several sponsors that donate money to buy all the supplies.

Families are welcome to stop by Helfrich Sunday afternoon between 2-4 p.m.
