It's hard to believe our summer is almost over and the kids will be heading back to school in a matters of a couple of weeks.

Remember the excitement of going clothes shopping for news jeans and shoes for school?  For many children in the Rockford Public Schools back to school clothes shopping isn't in their families budget.

You can help through buying new clothes and donating them to the Salvation Army's 12th Annual Clothes for Kids Back to School clothing drive.

 

This drive will help more than 1,000 RPS kids who are considered homeless and disadvantaged.

The drive runs now through August 16th. You can bring your donations to the center court of CherryVale Mall.
