SALEM, Va. (WDBJ) - A gym in Salem helped families get ready for school with a free supply giveaway Sunday.

E3 Fitness on Main Street gave out 50 bags of school supplies. Families also picked out free clothing, shoes and toys.

This comes after a driver drove into the gym building a few weeks ago. Since then, the owners have had to rearrange fitness classes at other locations while engineers work to get the car out.

The co-owner of E3 Fitness says even with everything going on, it’s still important to help the community.

“Part of the heart of E3 Fitness is to give back. Our heart is to serve others, so not just inside of the gym with really great fitness, but also just to serve those in need in our community.” says co-owner Joy Ezelle.

The gym members helped collect school supplies for this afternoon’s giveaway.
