Supplies Arrive For Annual School Supply Train

A truck load of school supplies arrived today in Longview to benefit thousands of students.

Wal Mart delivered the supplies this morning to the First Baptist church, the ROC. More than 4,000 kids will be helped this year.

Members of the Junior League of Longview and Buckner Family Services were there. They helped unload supplies and stuff them into backpacks for the students.

Low income families will be able to pick up school supplies from the Supply Train at the First Baptist church the ROC building Friday August 6th from 4 PM until 7 PM. The train runs again on Saturday August 7th from 9 AM until 5 PM.
