CORPUS CHRISTI -

Hundreds of local students will start this school year with a backpack full of supplies, thanks to a local church's Back to School Fair.

The Church of Hope hosted its second annual Back to School Fair on Saturday, giving out 1,000 backpacks to local kids. Each pack was filled with all the supplies they'll need to kick off the school year right.

However, that wasn't the only help offered at the fair. Students also had access to other essentials like immunizations (which are required before the first day of school, as we've reported), haircuts, dental exams, eye exams and even physicals.

Pastor Rod Young with the Church of Hope said its their way of helping take some stress off of local parents.

"What a blessing it is, what a joy it is to see the smiles on their faces, to just know that we can help them and be a blessing to them from Church of Hope," explained Young.

There were even a few special guests, including Captian America, who joined in the entertainment at the Fair.
