Back To School Rallies Come To Lexington Neighborhoods

With about two weeks left of summer vacation, Fayette County public school students are gearing up for the new school year. For the seventh year in a row, nearly 20 Lexington neighborhoods will be hosting back-to-school rallies.

Nicola Fleming with the YMCA says the Ready Set Go! events will provide food, resources for parents, and kids’ activities.

"These rallies are free and will provide 8000 elementary, middle, high school, and primary kits for kids all across Lexington," she says.

Registration takes place from 9 to 11 AM this Saturday. The free kits will handed out starting at noon. A full list of participating neighborhood can be found at ymcaofcentralky.org.
