Donations from the public boosted funds for the annual Sabine Parish Back-to-School Rally, as United Wat partnered with Walmart collecting school supplies a week prior to the August 3 rally.

The event was hosted at the First United Methodist Church of Many on Saturday, August 3 beginning at 8 a.m. Over 200 students picked up backpacks and school supplies, enjoyed face-painting, music and balloon animals, before a hot dog lunch with chips and Capri Sun, before cool snowcones.
