Still time to donate school supplies

SALEM (WSLS 10) - There are only a few days left to give to the 10 Cares Back to School Supplies Drive.

It's an effort to help students go back to school with the materials they need.

You can drop off items to any of the participating McDonald's locations around Southwest Virginia.

Dorothy Weeks, who works at a Salem McDonald's said the drive is an important part in helping these students succeed.

"I think it helps the family some and it helps the children in school so they won't get left out get behind on their lesson because they don't have the material to work with, said Dorothy Weeks, who works at McDonald's. "Well I hope they come out this weekend and bring more stuff and make our box really full."

She said she's looking forward to people coming in this weekend to donate. The drive runs through Sunday.
