Backpack giveaway to go along with Harrisburg’s free movie night

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Harrisburg’s last movie night at Reservoir Park will be Aug. 19, but it won’t be your typical movie night. The first 100 children to the free event will receive a backpack with books and supplies, according to a release from the City of Harrisburg.

Backpacks will begin to be handed out at 7:00 p.m., and the movie, “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” will begin at 8:00 p.m. Families will also receive popcorn once the free screening of the film begins, the release said.

“The city, my office and the local American Legion are coming together to give one last shout out to the students here in Harrisburg,” state Rep. Patty Kim, who planned the raffle, said in the statement. “We want to make sure they feel loved, they feel supported and have a good time with food and a movie night, to make sure they have a great start to the school year.”

The movie night and backpack giveaway are weather dependent, the release notes. Families attending movie night must bring their own seats and blankets.
