Children across the Wabash Valley are heading back to school and a local organization wants to make sure all kids have the supplies they need.

Kid Kare serves underprivileged children in the Clinton area.

On Monday night, they were busy stuffing bags full of school supplies for families in need.

Kid Kare helps children year round and they will hold a similar event for the holidays.

Board members say helping kids means a lot to them.

"Always really rewarding to help them out. I've been with this program now for a lot of years and it's always cheerful around here when we can help," says board member Ashley Wheat.

The school supplies are donated by the community and the United Way's Stuff the Bus event.
