Ardmore Young Professionals School Drive

Posted:

ARDMORE, OK-- Two Ardmore organizations are getting a head start by joining together to raise school supplies for children in need.
 
Right now the Ardmore Young Professionals group   is hosting a back-to-school supply drive. They're asking for donations like crayons, markers, Kleenex and hand sanitizer.

Organizers said so far they've filled about 600 back-packs with supplies.

In order to for a child to qualify for a free back-pack, they must get a letter from a school administrator.

"Our goal with Ardmore Young Professionals is we really hope that that family doesn't have to pay any out of pocket for their school supplies," said Lesley Dvorak, Executive Director at Grace Center in Ardmore.

The backpacks will be available for pick-up on August 7th at the Grace Center in Ardmore.
