'Repack the Backpacks' held at Gadsen Elementary School


“Repacking backpacks” for kids in Savannah.

Thursday, students received back to school goods, free haircuts and more thanks to Amerigroup Georgia. Families headed out to Gadsen Elementary School for the second year in a row to ensure they’re ready to head back to the classroom.

"The parents have come to me and they're like ‘Where do I do this? How do I do that?’ They are so excited. We really focus on our communities, so we wanted to make sure that they didn't have to worry about that extra need,” said Amerigroup Marking Account Manager Shenna Jones.

Savannah was the fourth stop on Amerigroup's six city trip around Georgia. The next stop is on the 23rd at Georgia Square Mall in Athens.
