DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- The start of the new school year is fast approaching, and that means parents are starting to think about school supplies.

Getting those supplies can be a financial hardship for many families. That's why "Volunteers of America" is sponsoring "Operation Backpack."

School supplies collected at the Streets at Southpoint Mall from July 10 until Aug. 28 will go to students in the Durham area.
