Bridgestone, United Way donate backpacks to Metro students

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

More than 7,000 Metro students were well-prepared for the first day of school thanks to some generous donors.

Bridgestone and the United Way donated 7,500 backpacks full of school supplies for Metro children.

The backpacks were given to every student at seven schools across the city.

Teachers say the donations help students get the school year off to a great start, and helps them since they usually have to spend their own money on supplies for the class.
