Hundreds of children attend Back-to-School Bash in Richmond County

Back-to-School Bash

RICHMOND COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - Hundreds of kids and their parents celebrated Summer's end- by getting free school supplies. It was held today at the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library.

Barbers and stylists were on hand to give kids free haircuts and styles. Kiddos got free dental exams, face painting a free lunch, games and story time.

We caught up with one child who told us why he was there.

"I'm happy and I like to read and I like my teachers and I like to go to school," Dantrez Sheppard told FOX 54.

The free event was sponsored by the Richmond County Council of PTAS, CareSource and the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library System.
