To some, school supplies may not seem like something special.

For hundreds of kids Wednesday morning at Magnolia School, new backpacks full of pencils and notebooks were the highlight of their day.

"They said, are we getting new backpacks. I said, yes sweetie, and they were just so excited, and then seeing them come in this morning, and all their eyes just so big," said Lauren Nalty, an Art teacher at Magnolia.

Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys Project Backpack is making stops not just here in Baldwin County, but Mobile, and Pascagoula, giving away 1,600 brand new backpacks full of all the school essentials to local students in need.

Only 150 students could come celebrate and pick up their new packs in person, as schools limit gym capacity due to the pandemic, but all the kids in the school are getting their very own backpack to take home.
