The Winston-Salem Police Department (WSPD) and the Winston-Salem Police Foundation continued its back-to-school tradition last week when they gave away more than 1,000 backpacks on Friday, Aug. 12, at four different locations across the city. 

In addition to the backpacks, local students also received school supplies, snacks and other items during the giveaways. At the Winston Mutual Building, the line started to form nearly three hours before the event was scheduled to begin. At South Fork Elementary School, more than 300 children received backpacks. 

The WSPD and the Police Foundation have been sponsoring the backpack giveaway since 2016.
