INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (July 20, 2014) — As summer vacation begins to wind down, it’s time to start thinking about back-to-school supplies.

The “Catch the Stars” Foundation held its ninth annual back-to-school celebration on the city’s east side on Sunday.

Workers handed out backpacks that were filled with school supplies.
