#WJHLSurprise Squad’s School Supply Giveaway

JOHNSON CITY/KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) –  News Channel 11’s Sara Diamond, Kenny Hawkins and the rest of the Surprise Squad crew are in your corner helping to get your kids ready to head back to class.

For many families in the Tri-Cities, providing these school supplies can be a struggle. The average parent spends more than $100 per child on school supplies  – and that’s without getting everything on a suggested school supply list.

WJHL and our sponsors are partnering to give parents a jump-start.

This week, the Surprise Squad crew doubled as the Supplies Squad for a two-day school supply giveaway, which kicked off Tuesday on the Bristol Highway at Auto Nation in Johnson City. We distributed 500 back-to-school starter packs at 5 p.m.

On Wednesday (July 27), News Channel 11 held another school supply giveaway in Kingsport at the corner of Broad and Center streets, where the first 500 people were given back-to-school supplies.
