SHREVEPORT, La - School bells will be ringing soon in the ArkLaTex, so now's the time to set those kids up for success.
KTBS 3 is On Your Side and with the generous help of our partners, we're helping to provide area students with the school supplies they need.
We're collecting school supplies Wednesday at WESLA Federal Credit Union at 8650 Fern Avenue 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 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.
