The Central Community Center, located at 5500 Highway 531 in Dubberly, was the host site for the Back to School Giveaway Saturday, August 31.
The event was sponsored by the Central Community Center and the Southside Swampers, which is an ATV riding club from Heflin committed to giving back to the community.
Applications for more than 150 students from Central Elementary and Lakeside High School were collected for the drive. The students ranged from Pre-K through 12th grade.
This was the third annual giveaway for the community center but the first time that the Southside Swampers assisted.
The President of the Central Community Association, Shelia Hunter, and CEO for the Southside Swampers, Shaw Mims, collaborated the groups together to ensure that this year's event was a success.
Many students and parents turned out for the event along with several volunteers and members of each organization.
