World Vision donates supplies to students

August 8, 2005

Albany - More than 17 million kids nationwide will return to school without basic supplies this year. But hundreds of Dougherty County students are ready to learn thanks to a Christian relief group.

World Vision handed out hundreds of backpacks filled with school supplies to students at six county schools Monday, including Turner Elementary. World Vision also offers mentoring programs and other services for parents and students.

"We have mentors to work with these young people, assist them with their homework and help them build character," said Margaret Taylor, World Vision.

You can also get school supplies for your student anytime throughout the year at World Vision's storehouse 930 West Gordon Avenue.
