It’s already back to school time and C&J Resources is hosting their 3rd Annual Backpack Giveaway event. Founder, Chante Myles-Rice said that “prepared students feel more confident in their abilities. This boost in self-esteem encourages them to actively participate in classroom activities and take on challenges without fear of failure.”

The free event will be held, Saturday, August 5 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at 535 Jack Warner Parkway E-2, Tuscaloosa. According to the press release, there will be “community resources, food, and more.”

Why Backpacks?

"Readiness for the school year is like a well-packed backpack – filled with knowledge, curiosity, and the excitement to embark on a journey of learning and growth,” said Rice.
