A Tennessee Valley couple hopes to give every family the basic necessities for their child to thrive in school.

For the fifth year, Redd and Robin Hardy hosted the Southside Back to School Bash. Saturday, nearly 300 kids received the supplies they needed and enjoyed a full day of fun at The Bethlehem Center.

Robin and Redd said they love seeing the joy the event brings to the community.

"It's a blessing man to see all the churches and pastors come together to just be a blessing to the kids. My wife and I were just glad to be apart of what God is doing in the community," Redd Hardy said.

While Saturday's event is over, those who still want to donate can do so at The Bethlehem Center.
