Ready Set Go! Back to School expo kicks off Saturday

Back To School

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The annual Ready Set Go! Back to School (RSGBTS) expo took on a new form this year, but organizers are working hard to make sure children get the school supplies they need.

Unlike the annual expo, this event focused solely on the distribution of school supplies. Families were asked to stay in their cars with their trunks open while volunteers provided them with supplies.

How to donate

This year more than ever, families will need assistance with school supplies for their children.

And like most businesses and organizations, RSGBTS has been affected by the pandemic. The organization has struggled with needed funds and supplies to reach their goal of packing bags for 5,000 students.

Essential supplies needed include:

  • notebook paper
  • composition books
  • folders
  • colored pencils
  • crayons
  • pencils
  • pens
  • book bags (clear or mesh preferred)

Donations are accepted at the following drop off-locations:

  • AT&T store (214 Mall Blvd. in Savannah)
  • Empowerment Center (4704 Augusta Rd. in Garden City)
  • WSAV Studios (1430 E Victory Dr. in Savannah)

WSAV is proud to partner with RSGBTS for another school year. Visit here to learn more about the organization.
