Salvation Army Vicksburg helping kids in need with school supplies

VICKSBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Salvation Army of Vicksburg is going to be busy as many students are getting ready to head back to school.

They have collected school supplies over the last month to help those who cannot afford the expense of the notebooks, pencils and erasers children will need for the new school year.

The Salvation Army of Vicksburg is now loading those supplies in backpacks getting them ready for delivery.

On Thursday, from 10 am until 2 pm, 40 volunteers will load 300 backpacks to be delivered to students who, otherwise, would not get new school supplies.

It takes place at 530 Mission 66 at Salvation Army of Vicksburg headquarters. Command officers with the agency will be on hand to answer questions.
