SWANTON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A supply drive is underway at the American Legion in Swanton to make sure students have what they need this upcoming school year.

Organizers say they're hoping to collect enough supplies to help at least 50 students.

Auxiliary President Linda West says the Legion is working with local schools to put together a list of supplies students will need, and says there are many families in the area who can't afford these supplies.

"When you look at the list, it's big and it's expensive, so they need all the help that they can get," West said. "I hope it means the world to them, and that's why we're here."

To donate, drop supplies off at the American Legion in Swanton. They're open Tuesday through Saturday, 2-10 p.m.
