HOUSTON -

The end of summer is near, which means students are getting ready to head back to school. Thanks to Big Brother Big Sisters and local businesses, hundreds of students will return to the classroom with brand new school supplies.

On Thursday, backpacks and supplies were handed out at BBVA Compass Stadium to families and students selected for the program.

"I've been out of work. I'm going to school now, so we're all starting school on the 27th, all of us," said one mother.

About 500 children received the backpacks.
