As the 2018-19 school year begins, parents stock up on the costly list of required school supplies and backpacks.

For some, the purchase of these items is a hardship.

To assist those in need, community churches and organizations have collected supplies and funds to donate not only school supplies and backpacks, but also haircuts and immunizations.
