School will be back in session before you know it and Operation Back to School is working to ensure low-income students start the new school year prepared and ready to learn.

OBTS committee chair Cindy Reynders says volunteers are seeking basic school supplies and monetary donations for kindergarten through college-aged students in Laramie County.

"Education for Laramie County students is a priority and the committee is proud to help students in need so they have access to proper learning tools," said Reynders.

"Because of the generous Cheyenne businesses and organizations that donate to this program, we are able to make this happen," she added.

Reynders says school supplies can be dropped off at the City of Cheyenne, Needs Inc., Laramie County Community College, the Laramie County Library and F.E. Warren Air Force Base.

Donated supplies will be given out from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Aug. 16-18 at Needs Inc. at 900 Central Avenue. Those in need of supplies should stop by Needs Inc. before Aug. 16 to prequalify.
