SHERMAN, Texas -- Yikes! It's almost time to start thinking about school bells again.

And for parents trying to save money on clothing and supplies, Goodwill Industries of Northeast Texas has just the remedy: Its Back to School Bash on Saturday, August 11.

Goodwill spokeswoman Sarah Pierce said the "very kid-friendly" event will coincide with the Texas sales tax holiday weekend to maximize savings on gently used name brand clothing and other needed items.

"We don't want you to worry about the prices, because we already have amazing prices," Pierce said.

And there's an added inducement for families to visit the Goodwill store on August 11.

"We are giving away eight free backpacks," Pierce said. "We are having a dunking booth, and I heard a rumor that the new principal at the high school, she may be in there!"

The Back to School Bash will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at the store at 2206 East Lamar Street, across from Sherman High School.
