GREEN BAY -- A local radio station is reaching out to help as kids get ready to head back to school.
91.1 The Avenue gave students in need the opportunity to pick up one of 400 free brand new backpacks in Green Bay this morning. Leaders with the project say they're happy they can help.
"Well you know, it's funny because I didn't think a kid could cry over a backpack. And these are really cool backpacks so the kids are really excited," says Operations Manager for 91.1, Shaun Shouldeen.
The backpacks are donated by Jansport. There will be another giveaway tomorrow in the parking lot at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
