Houstonians again proved they have generous hearts as they helped nearly 29,000 local school children get ready for the school year. The YMCA of Greater Houston says its sixth annual operation backpack collected 12,522 backpacks along with more than 153,000 school supplies.

The donations totaled more than a million dollars.

The supplies went to students in 31 area school districts.
