Some students in Zachary are heading back to school with new supplies. The Zachary Community Center gave away school items to needy families. They also gave out school uniforms and door prizes.

Baton Rouge Chief of Police Jeff Leduff was on hand to give an inspirational speech to the kids. The chairman of the group says it's all about helping others.

They're hoping to do an even larger event next year.
