DENISON, Tex. ― With school now back in session and tight budgets for some local parents, many kids are in need of school supplies. The Denison Chamber of Commerce is lending a hand.

For the second year the chamber is teaming up with Partners in Education to collect school supplies. All the donations will be distributed to the Denison Independent School District.

"I see everyday kids that come in, and they don't have the supplies that they need so we want our kids on a footing to where they can educate themselves," Christy Raitt at the Denison Chamber of Commerce says.

If you would like to see the list of supplies that are needed, check the link below.
