SHREVEPORT, La - It's back to school next week for students across Northwest Louisiana. KTBS 3 is On Your Side helping make sure students have all the tools they need.
We're collecting school supplies Tuesday at Barksdale Federal Credit Union on East 70th Street in Shreveport. A big yellow school bus will be waiting outside in the parking lot from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
It's all in support of the Annual Mayors' Backpack Giveaway, sponsored by the cities of Shreveport and Bossier. The school supplies are available to all Shreveport and Bossier students.
We're partnering with The Simple Church to fill the backpacks and pass them out.
The giveaway is Sunday, August 4th from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Shreveport Convention Center.
