BATON ROUGE - Organizers are ready to stuff school buses with donated school supplies.

WBRZ has teamed up with Office Depot and Raising Cane's to collect donated school supplies.

You can help by donating anything from scissors, notebooks, crayons and paper at the Office Depot on College Drive in Baton Rouge or the one in Gonzales on Airline Highway.

The school supplies will be packed into school buses at both locations. After, the buses will be un-stuffed, and the school supplies will be given to students that need them the most.

Organizers say around 80 percent of children in East Baton Rouge Parish are below the poverty line. The school supplies will go to students in both East Baton Rouge and Ascension Parishes.
