St. Vincent RN and Case Manager Paulette Gaskill is the main organizer of the event.
According to Gaskill, the event is possible because of donations from area businesses, such as Cloverleaf Healthcare of Knightsville, which donated hot dogs, and Pepsi, which donated refreshments.
The school drive uses funds accrued from the food stand to buy school supplies.
This year, the event -- which is in its fourth year -- is called "Don't Hesitate to Educate" and divides the "stuffed backpacks" it attains between all seven-area elementary schools.
"Last year we did 200 stuffed backpacks," Gaskill said, "So we have to beat that this year."
Monday's event took place in the Brazil Walgreens parking lot and according to Gaskill, will visit other area businesses in the future with the majority of the supplies bought at the store it is at.
Gaskill said the next event would take place at the Brazil Kroger from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., on July 28.
Meanwhile, the Walgreens Way to Well Health Tour with AARP was stationed in the Walgreens parking lot.
"We're offering free health tests to people ... we're checking total cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a body weight assessment ... it's a $100 value," Grace Hatcher, certified wellness staff, said.
Hatcher said the tests take 15-20 minutes if there is no wait and multiple buses have been touring the country.
"There are four buses going out all across the country and one in Puerto Rico," Hatcher said.
According to Hatcher, Monday was the tour's last day in Indiana, but a full tour schedule can be found at Walgreens.com/waytowell.
