In about a month from now, students throughout the area will be heading back to class for the start of a new school year. Parents are already getting ready, purchasing school supplies and uniforms.

But, there are many people in our area that simply can't afford to buy new uniforms for their children. That's why WAFB is once again teaming up with St. Vincent De Paul and Kean's Fine Dry cleaning to provide thousands of uniforms for children in need. And, we need your help.

You can drop off new or used uniforms at any Kean's. Or, you can send a check to Uniforms for Kids, P.O. Box 127, B.R., LA 70821-0127. A simple donation of $24 will buy a child the two uniforms he or she needs to attend school.

We know that times are tough. This is one effort we sincerely hope is a success. Thousands of children are depending on it. Click here for more information
