PHOENIX (3TV/CBS5) -- Back to school for 2020-2021 is starting off a little different than normal with majority of classes starting with online instruction in Arizona in hopes to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Either way, students are going to need school supplies to help with their studying and coursework.

Valleywise Health and its foundation will be providing students with free backpacks filled with school supplies at four of their Family Learning Center locations Saturday from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. for the under-served families around the Valley. 

Family Learning Centers provide guidance for parents on things including nutrition, parenting tips, health, safety literacy and child development. 

Valleywise also wants to make sure parents get their children their yearly wellness test. If you want to book your child for a wellness check, you can do so here

According to the Valleywise Health Foundation website, they raised $10,830 which is $830 over their goal. They are still taking donations.
