COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Denny's usually serves up "grand slams," but Tuesday evening the restaurant on Macon Road in Columbus was serving up free school supplies for area kids.

The restaurant was giving back to the community by making sure area kids have the supplies they need to go back to school. In all about 150 children received the school supplies.

"Nowadays everybody's on a budget and looking for help," said Denny's Regional Director, Yull Wohlmuth.  "What better way to help than with education.  We know that kids are the future and they are our professionals and leaders of tomorrow."

In addition to free school supplies, Denny's with the help of other participating businesses, also provided free haircuts, face painting, snacks and a bouncy house for the kids to enjoy.
