PARIS, Ill. (WTWO/WAWV)—Horizon Health hosted their Back to School Bang in a drive thru style due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Kids in attendance received snacks, played games and received backpacks filled with school supplies.
Christina Hoffman, Marketing Coordinator at Horizon Health, said the event was still successful despite the changes made due to the pandemic.
“I think people are enjoying it. It is extremely different than years past. It’s always been an inside event, a fun, interactive, educational event. But this year I think people still enjoyed it. I’ve seen lots of kids smile and laugh along the way. So it’s worth it,” she said.
Horizon Health supplied the community with 500 backpacks this year.
