Hope House School Supply Drive

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) The Hope House and the Alexandria Mall Chic Fil A are teaming up to provide school supplies to children in need.

Customers receive a free chicken sandwich when they donate at least five dollars worth of school supplies.

The Hope House currently houses 20 homeless boys and girls from the area.

Hope House leaders say the school supply drive helps their kids start the year on the right track.

"We just really want to thank the public for participating and coming out and supporting us and supporting these children because so many of them come to us and they don't have things that they need to start school. And this gives them the support that they need to go and strive to do well in school," said Shafer.

The school supply drive at the Alexandria Mall Chic Fil A is set end August twelfth.

    Tomorrow, expect a hot day with a big dome of high pressure moving right overhead. High temperatures will most likely climb into the mid-90s with mostly sunny skies and light southwest winds. With sinking air over the region, atmospheric pollutants and allergies will get banked up along the surface with no where to go. For this reason, pollen counts will be increasing tomorrow and air quality will most likely go down, so keep that in mind if you have breathing problems or allergies.Changes wi...More >>
