LENAWEE COUNTY, MI (Toledo News Now) -

A local charity is already thinking about the back-to-school season, and working to make sure kids have everything they need.

Clothes, shoes and backpacks are just some of the things being donated for "back-to-school packs."

Leaders of the Associated Charities of Lenawee County say it's important to provide this help to local families in need, and they hope it has a lasting impact on the children.

"So they're on an equal level with their fellow students, so that they have new clothing, they'll feel better about themselves and it will encourage them to stay in school," said Delight Creech, director of the Associated Charities of Lenawee County.

To register your family to receive donations, bring photo ID, proof of income, children's birth certificates, and proof of residency to the Associated Charities office in Adrian.
