The Darlington Housing Authority held a community wide back to school event Saturday afternoon where kids got school supplies and back packs.
Organizers say they hope to grow the event and opportunities for students to take advantage of before the new school year.
“This is new for the school district. This is their first year. We’re hoping to make it an annual event every year and include other community organizations to make it bigger as each year goes by. It makes me feel really good. I raised my kids that you give back to society,” says Jaime Steen, Executive Director of Housing Authority.
