Crestline's Church of God of Prophecy gave away book bags filled with school supplies to children in need for their "Back to School Bash". The event also provided games and activities for kids to enjoy during the nice weather.

"Well, the economy we're living in today is not so good," said Gary Grant, the church's pastor. "This helps out a lot of our children. School supplies are not cheap, so we try to help out in that regard. This year, we had over 100 book bags and those were gone in the first 45 minutes, so we're going to (make the event) bigger next year."

Games and activities included a bean bag toss, jump rope, and a tug-of-war contest. The Church of God of Prophecy will hold the event again next year.
