Eau Claire (WQOW)- A local school district says it is being overwhelmed by people saying they can't afford to buy school supplies for their kids. The need is so great that the Eau Claire School District is asking the public for help.
"We have all kinds of backpacks, but we don't have anything to put in them," says Patti Iverson with the Eau Claire School District.
The district needs your help. It says while the community has been generous this year, the need for school supplies has surpassed donations.
"The Boys and Girls Club has been great and has given us a lot of backpacks, but this year, we didn't get quite as many as we've had in the past," Iverson notes. "Donations were down a little bit. We are really finding a really great need for school supplies."
From notebooks to folders, pencils, pens and glue sticks; everything is needed.
"United HealthCare came in on Monday with 15 huge boxes of school supplies. They were gone in less than a day," remembers Iverson.
Already this week, six homeless families have come in to the district office asking for help because they can't afford school supplies for their kids. One family in particular made an impact.
"The mom looked scared and tired and alone. She had three little ones with her and they looked up at me like, please help me. It just really touched my heart," says Iverson. "The people in this community have been amazing at coming forward when we've had need. So I know that the people in this town will come forward now too."
If you would like to help, you can drop off school supplies for those in need at the Eau Claire School District on Main and Dewey Street. It has boxes set up for those supplies as you enter the building.
