JEROME, Idaho — A local business owner is doing her part to help those in need gear up for the "Back To School" season.

Liyah Babayan owns Ooh La La Boutique in downtown Twin Falls.

Coming up on August 9, she and community partners will be handing out hundreds of backpacks to kindergarten through fifth-graders in need in the Magic Valley.

Each backpack is filled with various school supplies like crayons, glue, and erasers.

The drive-by event runs from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the Jerome Liquidation Center.
