Atchison County Backpack Giveaway

The Backpack Giveaway is held annually in August.

Local children can receive free backpacks (while supplies last) filled with items to help them succeed in the new school year.

Since the event is geared toward school year preparation, local businesses also offer free services to those in attendance.

Some of the free services offered in the past include:

  • haircuts
  • shoe raffle
  • dental screenings
  • health care sign-up

Children must be present and accompanied by an adult to receive backpack.
