The Salvation Army's backpack program has kicked off in Huron County.
Officials with the Sally Ann will be collecting donations for kids' backpacks Friday and Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the Goderich Giant Tiger location.
Cadet Andrew Cherry says the most needed items include lunch bags, binders, erasers, lined paper, and markers.
Items can be dropped off to volunteers at Giant Tiger, or at the Salvation Army's offices in Goderich, Clinton, and Wingham.
To register your child for a backpack, you have until August 17th to call the Salvation Army at 519-524-2950.
