TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  The effort is underway to give needy kids the tools to go back to school.  

This afternoon Marriott Hotel employees will donate 50 or so backpacks and school supplies to the Assistance League of Tucson. From there the nonprofit will give the items to kids who could use a little financial help.  

Students in five districts will receive these backpacks, including Tucson Unified School District, Sunnyside Unified School District, Flowing Wells District, Amphitheater District and Altar Valley District.  Volunteers say by providing students with what they need it can  help them focus on their studies in the classroom.  

Although the donations are being made today, the kids will not receive the backpacks and supplies until sometime in September.
