Islamic Center to give out backpacks for back to school

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Volunteers from the Islamic Center of Cape Girardeau were at the back to school bash to register folks for a back pack give away the center's holding on Friday.

Last year, they gave out 500 and they hope to give out at least that many this year.

An organizer says giving back to the community is part of the Islamic faith.

If you'd like to get one of the back packs, you can head to the Islamic Center on North Westend Boulevard at 4 Friday afternoon.
