Red Cross collecting backpacks for military kids

The American Red Cross is collecting backpacks to support local military children until July 24th. The packs will be filled with school supplies and given to local kids whose parents have served or are currently serving in the armed forces. The Red Cross says their goal is to collect 300 backpacks. "We have to reach out to our veterans that are going through rough times right now, probably from all the war action they've seen. We want to help their families out and relieve some of their pain," said Todd Edgell, American Red Cross in Owensboro.

Drop off locations are:

Daviess County Public Library
Henderson Red Cross Office
Owensboro Red Cross Office
Green River Area Development District
Lewisport Public Library
WSON Radio Station in Henderson
Hancock County Public Library
Owensboro VA Clinic

The backpack collection is sponsored by Old National Bank.
