BIG SPRING - Homework could be a little harder for some Big Spring students without your help.

That's because their parents can't afford school supplies.

The Salvation Army is asking everyone to pitch in for their school supply drive.

They usually help out around 350 kids.

We're told they'll be given to children of low income families that are having a tough time making ends meet.

"Families are grateful, especially when you get large families and just to buy school supplies for one child; it's a lot of money. But when you put six seven kids in the equation, it gets really expensive, so they are really grateful," Terrie Cheshire with the Big Spring Salvation Army, said.

To help out, you drop off school supplies or money to the Salvation Army on Sixth Street.

They'll be taking donations until August.
