ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com)—St. Louis Realtors will be stuffing more than 500 backpacks with school supplies to hand them out at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis Thursday.

The “Supplies for Success Program” allows the students to receive brand-new gear, including crayons, calculators and binders.

“There’s just a lot of need to get kids off to the right start,” said Barry Upchurch, the president-elect of St. Louis Realtors. “A lot of times teachers are having to buy these supplies.”

Event organizers are encouraging others to get involved by dropping off school supplies at various locations around the city.
