CORPUS CHRISTI - With your help, this year's Operation Supply Our Students was a big success. Your donations will help thousands of Coastal Bend students get ready to go back to school.
Today, those supplies and being sorted so schools will start picking them up in time for class.
KRIS6 News teamed up again this year with the United Way, H-E-B, and Goodwill Industries of South Texas to collect the supplies for students in need.
We'd all like to thank everyone who came out to donation sites and dropped off about $10,000 dollars in school supplies. More supplies were purchased with the $40,000 in cash donations.
That includes $12,000 in cash donations. The contributions from Frost Bank, Spohn Health Care and First Community Bank haven't been tallied up yet.
But we're sure students across the Coastal Bend will appreciate the help!
