School Supply & Clothing Drive Helps Area Families

A school supply and clothes drive helped area families prepare for the upcoming year.  Early Saturday morning families came out to St. Matthew's Baptist Church to gear up for the year.  An arrangement of school items and clothes were available for free to families.  Church members say they just wanted to give back to the community.

"We are all actually able to give back and give back from our hearts to someone who's in need someone who needs school supplies and clothes," said Doris Smith with St. Matthew's.  It began at 8:30 in the morning and lasted until all the supplies were gone.
