A drive to make sure no Laramie County student starts school without the supplies they need is in full swing.

Operation Back To School collects supplies for low-income Laramie County students in both Laramie County School District #1 and #2 as well as local college students.

People can donate supplies at Needs Inc., LCCC, the Laramie County Library, the the LCSD#1 administration building and F.E. Warren Air Force Base. Donations of money can also be made.

Checks should be made out to Needs, Inc. Attn: OBTS.

Families needing school supplies should register at Needs Inc. at 900 Central Ave. by Saturday, Aug. 6. That's also when the supplies collected in the drive will be handed out.

That event is slated for 10 a.m. at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter Community Room at 900 Central Ave.
