BATON ROUGE- The 7th annual Stuff the Bus event begins tomorrow at 6 a.m. as WBRZ and the community work to bring in needed school supplies for area students.

Volunteers in Public Schools knows the need first hand and has seen how students respond to a full backpack.

"The kids actually are happy to go back to school, their grades have improved, their confidence has improved because they have the basic necessities for them to be able to succeed in the classroom," said Jonathon Richard with VIPS.

For parents who are already working to support their family, the extra cost of school supplies can be demanding.

"They have a hard time putting food on the table, let alone trying to make sure their children have the things they need to be able to learn," said Richard.

You can help donate supplies tomorrow at any local Raising Cane's or at the Office Depot locations on College Drive in Baton Rouge and on Airline in Gonzales.
