Salvation Army collecting back to school supplies

JACKSON, Miss (WJTV) - The Salvation Army is helping area kids get back to school with everything they need to make the grade!

Shay O'Connor met with them at the Flowood Wal-Mart to help collect supplies and talk to them about their upcoming event.

The Back to School Splash is a Caring for Mississippi event to help kids stock up on badly needed items. I'm here with the Salvation Army in Flowood where volunteers are attempting to stuff this truck full of items over the next few days.

The items will be used for student backpacks in the Jackson area. Anyone can come by until 6 pm and bring things to help out. 

The Back to School Splash is July 21.
