About a hundred students in Odessa got to go on a back-to-school shopping spree.
Volunteers from some businesses in the Permain Basin teamed up with Communities In Schools of the Permian Basin.
It's a program to help lower drop-out rates in both E.C.I.S.D. and M.I.S.D.
Saturday's 10-thousand dollar shopping spree means students got to buy clothes and school supplies as they get ready for back-to school.
Those in charge say this event helps students who have faced tough challenges in their lives.
