ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- More than 600 St. Johns County students received needed school supplies Saturday at a back-to-school event put on by THE PLAYERS Championship and other community partners.

Students received free supplies, clothing, physicals and dental screenings, and were provided access to talk with social counselors.

The event was held at the Webster School in St. Augustine and put on by more than 40 organizations.

"Saturday's Back-to School Day was a great example of a community coming together to help those in need," said Cathie Hurlburt, Director of Charitable Outreach for the PGA TOUR. "We are thankful for the community partners and volunteers who helped us provide supplies, medical and dental services, and other resources and services to more than 600 children, allowing them to begin the school year prepared."

Most St. Johns County students will go back to school Aug. 19.
