Non-Profit Collects School Supplies For Kids

There's a path to success, and to get there you need school supplies. That's the message of Path, a non-profit organization that collects school supplies for 11,000 East Texas kids.

The program just launched what they call their annual "School Supply Train" program.

Path organizers and Channel 7's Mark Scirto helped kick off the campaign Wednesday morning. Tyler educators say the "supply train" makes the first day of school easier for everyone.

"Many students at our school are on free and reduced lunch plans," says Douglas Principal Beverly Collins. "Many cannot afford school supplies, so it's extremely important for them to have the things they need. The supply train just saves our lives."

The school train will be in front of KLTV Friday afternoon. If you'd like more information on donating supplies, you can click on the "Community" icon.
