News 3 and Southern Bank are partnering up to collect school supplies for Operation Backpack Blitz!

Supplies such as backpacks, three-ring binders, pens and pencils, hand sanitizers, and more are suggested to donate.

You can drop off new backpacks and school supplies at any Southern Bank location in Hampton Roads or the ForKids location in Norfolk or Suffolk.

Amazon Smiles has partnered to offer an easy way to order items using the Amazon ForKids Back to School 2021 Wish List. To shop, click here and choose ForKids and they will receive 0.5% of eligible purchases.

Donations will be accepted now through August 25.
