Gearing Up for Tools For Schools
It's almost back to school time for students in the mountains. And News 13 wants to remind you about our Tools for Schools drive Wednesday, with Eblen Charities. It's the biggest one-day school supply drive in our area to help families in need.
Organizers hope people will respond with more than a million items needed for students to head back to the classroom.
"And it's important because with school budgets being cut, with the economy still the way it is, and seeing so many families, so many students that are going to be struggling...just for the basics," says Bill Murdock with Eblen Charities.
Eblen expects a record year. News 13 will be on the air live from the Tunnel Road Ingles beginning in our morning news at 4:30 a.m. and continuing throughout the day Wednesday.
