It's almost time for kids to head back to school and many families are beginning to prepare. WBNG is partnering with Raymour and Flanigan and Hatala Orthodontics to help local children in need of school supplies.
Kara Conrad went to Hatala Orthodontics to see what the business is doing to help these children in need. People can drop off backpacks or supplies 24/7 at Hatala Orthodontics in the bin outside or during business hours. Hatala Orthodontics is open Monday thru Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Fridays 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
People can also drop off new or gently used backpacks at Raymour and Flanigan in Johnson City.
The backpack drive will end on August 27.
