Pop star Beyonce is donating backpacks and other school supplies to 2,000 students in six cities — including Philadelphia — NBC 10 reports.

Beyonce’s charity #BeyGOOD as well as STATE Bags will hold a pep rally to support local organizations in Philly. A special custom #BeyGOOD State Bag backpack will also be available for purchase with all proceeds going toward the back-to-school program initiative.




The pep rally and bag drop-off will take place at the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia on August 27th, In addition to Philly, Beyonce is also providing backpacks for underprivileged students in Newark, NJ, New York, NY, Charlotte, NC, Baltimore, MD, and Washington DC.

Which is great, but it doesn't answer the question everybody's asking lately: Will Beyonce and Jay-Z's bookbags stay together?
