It’s just about that time again.

In the coming weeks, parents and students will be heading to the stores to assemble the pencils, scissors, glue and other necessities for a successful school year.

To help ensure success for every student, two local organizations are collecting supplies to help needy families give their kids the tools they need for going back to school.

The Salvation Army of Northwest Ohio, in conjunction with the Charter One Foundation, is conducting its annual Tools for School campaign, designed to help low-income families.
