BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - As Bossier students prepare to return to class — the Bossier Chamber of Commerce is working to make sure they’re prepared.

The event was held at two drop-off locations: the Walmart Neighborhood Market at 4000 Barksdale Blvd. and Airline High School at 2801 Airline Drive.

These locations were only for donating supplies. No school supplies were distributed at this event. At Airline High, Grind Engineering Labs also handed out lunches to donors.

“We don’t have chalkboards anymore, we have the white boards, the dry erase boards. So those markers are needed as they go through a lot of those throughout the year. We also need kindergarten nap mats and also headphones, the earbuds, as well as the individual earphones because children learn so much on the Google Chrome books. Those are three big needs,” said Sonja Bailes with BPS.

Teachers are in need of supplies all year round. The community is encouraged to check in with schools and ask if teachers need any help during the school year.
