ACCOMAC --Today, students are facing a tremendous number of obstacles when it comes to completing their education. Not having the necessary school supplies is an obstacle in which we all can help.

The Salvation Army -- Accomack County Service Unit is conducting a "Back to School Supply" drive for students in Accomack County Public Schools during the month of August.

School supplies collected will be donated to each elementary and middle school classroom.

Persons wishing to help, may drop off school supplies at the Salvation Army office located at Calvary Bible Church, 22344 Front St. in Accomac on Thursdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Some of the items needed are: pencils (regular & colored), ink pens, pocket folders, scissors, spiral notebooks, glue (liquid & stick), pencil sharpeners, protractor rulers, notebook paper (wide ruled), compasses, pencil erasers, pencil pouch crayons (8 and 24 count), highlighters, backpacks, hand wipes, paper towels, subject dividers, graph paper and composition books
