OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma City church is giving hundreds of families a leg up in their back-to-school shopping.

For the 13th straight year, the OKC Faith Church, 800 S. Portland Ave., had a "family fun day."

Besides giving out more than 10,000 breakfast burritos, organizers also gave out 5,000 backpacks and 100,000 different school supplies to children Saturday morning.

"We found here in Oklahoma City that parents, some parents are faced with either pay their light bills come August, or buy their school supplies for their kids," Jamie Shirey of OKC Faith Church said. "We kind of just want to take that pressure off of them."

The church said there was a line of 3,000 people, when they opened at 8 a.m.
