Gift-giving season arrived early for six schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Amazon donated $15,000 worth of backpacks filled with school supplies along with $24,000 to support science, technology and engineering education at four elementary schools in the Fort Worth Independent School District and two schools in the Dallas Independent School District during a two-day donation tour through each school.
Amazon says the donations are part of the company's efforts to give back to local communities where its employees live and work.
The Fort Worth schools receiving the donations were: John T. White Elementary School, Carroll Peak Elementary School, Clifford Davis Elementary School and Glencrest 6th Grade Center.
The Dallas schools were: Martin Luther King Jr. Learning Center and T.W. Browne Middle School.
