Kids in Flint are starting the school year with their best foot forward thanks in part to local celebrity, Marshall Mathers... You may know him better as rapper Eminem/Slim Shady.

The Marshall Mathers Foundation (created by Eminem), Flint Community Schools, and Kids In Need Foundation teamed up to collect backpacks and supplies to give to Flint kids. Between the three foundations, more than 5,000 bags were collected and stuffed with supplies. All those backpacks are now going to kids in need in Flint, kindergarten through high school!
