The Weirton community came together to send their children back to class the right way with plenty of fun.
The Back to School Bash gave local children in Brooke and Hancock Counties one last chance to cut loose before heading back into the classroom.
Weirton Medical Center donated school bags and, through school supply donations from the community, they were able to fill 550 bags for the kids to make sure there won’t be any added stress on the first day of school.
“It gives them the basic supplies so that they can go in the classroom and be ready to learn and grow and be themselves,” said Top of WV Community Resource Day Event Chair Barb Canterbury
More than 30 different agencies took part in Resource Day and Back to School Bash.
This was the fourth year the Top of West Virginia has held the bash, which also included performances from local musicians including hip hop artist Josh Elias who was recently profiled here on 7-News.
