With the school year nearly upon us, it's time to start thinking not only about our own kids, but those kids who need a little help with their school supplies.

Once again this year, The Banquet in Sioux Falls is helping get supplies into the hands of all kinds with Project SOS (Supply Our Students).

Over the years, The Banquet has given more than 6,400 school supply packets to students and they're collecting donations again this year.

They are looking for school supplies for kids of all ages or monetary donations to cover the cost of supplies.

There's also a fun way to give with Terrific Tuesdays at Wild Water West. Between now and August 27th, you can go to Wild Water West on Tuesdays and with a donation, get in for a reduced price.

The Banquet is also looking for volunteers to help get backpacks ready for distribution.

Madeline Shields from The Banquet talks about the great need in our community for this program:
