Back to school: Volunteers needed for Backpack Attack festival


The Backpack Attack festival is right around the corner, and volunteers from Zionsville and Lebanon are needed.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., but volunteers will be needed before and after as well for setup and cleanup.

Backpack Attack is a state-wide initiative to collect school supplies for under-privileged Indiana schoolchildren. At the festival, thousands of students come to receive backpacks, supplies, books, and other resources donated by the community. There will also be activities such as face-painting, a bounce-house, a haircutting station, and even a sock and underwear giveaway to help families sending kids back to school.

Families and children from around Boone County are invited to volunteer.

The event will take place at the Lebanon Boys and Girls Club, at 403 W. Main Street, Lebanon.
