Back to School Project underway

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Back to School Project organizers are busy gathering school supplies.

Ruth Orth has been organizing the project for more than 20 years with her husband, and she says she's happy to help students in need.

"They would go to school with broken crayons or no crayons or maybe a stubby pencil or two. This way, they get all new school supplies to start the year, and the last three or four years, we've been able to give every student a new backpack also," Orth said.

Ruth said students will be given their backpacks and supplies August 17 and 18.

She said parents need to fill out a request form before picking up their supplies.
