A Wilmington ministry is giving away 5,000 backpacks filled with school supplies as part of a larger initiative happening in other states. Bishop Gregory Davis and members of his church will hand out backpacks as volunteers for the Operation Backpack initiative. Operation Backpack distributions are also happening in Pennsylvania and Michigan.

The effort is being hosted by Greg Davis Ministries, which has a backpack giveaway every year to help students be ready to return to school.

Wilmington officials also have been invited to the event, planned at seven locations from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
