DENISON, TX - The Denison Chamber of Commerce is holding their fourth annual Kits for Kids school supply drive.
With one school semester over and one to go many, students have either used up or lost most of their school supplies.
Between now and January 14th the chamber will be collecting supplies for those students at their office located at 313 West Woodard. They need basic supplies like paper, pens, pencils, and notebooks.
Chamber Member Belinda Blake says that many children don't tell their parents that they need supplies and a lot of the time that burden ends up falling on the teacher.
"it's extremely important. A lot of parents don't realize that their kids are out of things at school. They don't come home and say I'm out of pencils so teachers give hand outs and even if only one at a time it can really add up for them," Blake says.
