Nearly 100 students have some new backpacks for the new school year.

Children at the Children's Home of Reading were presented with backpacks full of school supplies Friday morning.

In addition to the pens, pencils and notebooks, kids were also treated to lunch, drinks and cookies.

The food and supplies came courtesy of Henry Schein, a medical, dental and veterinary supply company.
