WICHITA, Kansas – The 2nd annual School Rulez Backpack & School Supplies Giveaway will take place at McAdams Park on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

McAdams Park is located at 1329 E. 16th Street North.

The School Rulez Giveaway will have 3,000 backpacks stuffed with supplies to be given to students in grades K-8 on a first-come, first-served basis (child receiving the backpack must be present).

The School Rulez Backpack Giveaway is a partnership formed by community-oriented businesses wanting to invest in the children of Wichita coming from low-income households.

Along with the many businesses involved in the giveaway, a bi-partisan effort between Democrat State Representative John Carmichael and Republican State Senator Michael O’Donnell has also been formed to encourage businesses and elected officials to step forward and work together for our community.
