Kids across Lexington will be receiving school supplies free courtesy of the YMCA this Saturday.  The supplies, including backpacks, will be given away to up to 8000 kids in 20 local neighborhoods as part of the YMCA's Ready, Set, Go! Back-to-School Rallies. The events, which cater to elementary, middle, and high school students, will also feature activities, resource booths, entertainment, food, and speakers.

Interested parents must register between 9 and 11 a.m. tomorrow morning. For a full listing of participating neighborhoods, visit or call the United Way at 2-1-1.
