Real estate agency donates book bags, back-to school supplies

Local Keller Williams Realty agents, through the company’s Cares for Kids program, donated 250 book bags filled with school supplies to help students and their parents prepare for back-to-school.
Agents spent the day on August 3 visiting schools around the county delivering book bags filled with paper, pencils, crayons, folders and other supplies that will be distributed to children whose families need assistance with providing classroom materials for the new school year.
About 110 of the book bags were given to the CARE (Children at Risk in Education) program that will oversee distribution to children throughout the school system who are in need. Karen Spangler, the program’s coordinator, says this is the first year she can remember where parents started calling before school started to request assistance with supplies.
“Many of these parents didn’t need help last year, but because of the economy they need help now. This donation couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Spangler.
