LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)— Students are ready to learn after Saturday's event for Tools For Schools.
The Salvation Army and sponsors collected items to give children in Kindergarten through 12th-grade supplies.
The event welcomed families at the Lafayette Adult Resource Academy building, where lines started up early to collect backpacks, clothes, and books.
Salvation Army Lieutenant Rachel Johnson said this event gets kids excited for the year.
"Our goal is to get kids off to a good start for the school year," said Johnson. "They get new clothes, some new shoes, some fresh school supplies, hoping that it gets kids off to a good start for a successful school year."
If you missed your chance to pick up these items, you can still call the Salvation Army on Monday. Any leftover supplies can be picked up on Tuesday.
