Lawrence Agency Collects School Supplies for Kids


If school started today, hundreds of children in Douglas County would begin classes without any school supplies. But an agency in Lawrence is trying to fix that. Ballard Community Services is in the middle of a fundraising campaign, collecting private donations to make sure that school kids in Douglas County have the necessary paper, pencils, crayons -- and everything else they need to start the year right. KPR's J. Schafer recently spoke with Kyle Roggenkamp, director of Human Services at Ballard's Penn House location, who's spearheading the effort.

That's Kyle Roggenkamp, with Ballard Community Services in Lawrence. He was speaking with KPR's J. Schafer. To learn how you can help make sure students in Douglas County have all the school supplies they need, visit the Ballard Community Services website.
