Volunteer Center Drive for school supplies kicks off today

Posted: Updated:

As kids are running around and enjoying summer vacation, school is probably the furthest thing from their minds.

But the school year is approaching and so is that long list of supplies parents need to complete.

The annual Volunteer Center Drive to gather supplies for children started today and parents we talked with say they're happy to help, but are always surprised when the school years sneaks up on them so quickly.

Donations made to the Volunteer Center go out to students all across Benton and Franklin Counties.

 To give some school gear just look for a volunteer box outside of places like Office Max, local churches and KGH along with Kadlec Medical Center.
