School supply drive happening today in Oro Valley

ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Salvation Army is asking for the community's help to collect school supplies for children in need.

This drive will help students in communities who are in need of school supplies, but whose families are struggling to make ends meet.

The Salvation Army is calling on communities to help, they are teaming up with Fry's Food and Drug stores to host a school supply drive today.

Organizers say most of these children do not have the necessary school supplies to start the school year.  Donations of pens, pencils, paper, folders, rulers, markers, colored pencils and erasers are needed.  No donation is too small.

There will be a Salvation Army truck in the parking lot of the Fry's at 10661 N. Oracle Road in Oro Valley, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

School supply donations will also be accepted through July 31.
