Teen Summit gives away backpacks

CREATED Aug. 3, 2013 - UPDATED: Aug. 3, 2013

FORT MYERS, Fla. - School starts next week, so it's time to get the kids back into the swing of things.

And what better way than a teen summit? 

First Assembly Cornerstone held one today, followed by a backpack giveaway. The event not only helped more than 1,000 kids get physically prepared with new school gear and supplies, but also gave them a mental boost.

"They talked about education, how important this is in going to the next level after high school, they talked about sex, drugs and violence and how to deal with peer pressure," First Assembly Cornerstone Co-Pastor Marjorie Ford said.
Lee County schools head back on August 8th.
