OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Salvation Army and Omaha television station KETV are again teaming up to distribute new school supplies to needy kids.

Since 1998, the Back to School backpack program has helped thousands of children by providing them with backpacks, school supplies and free school health checks at locations across the metro.

The Salvation Army and KETV distributed new backpacks and school supplies on Friday and do so again on Saturday at the Omaha Kroc Center and the Omaha North Corps Community Center.

Those seeking to receive a backpack are required to bring a Social Security card or birth certificate or proof of school enrollment for each qualifying child, as well as identification for the parent.

Monetary donations for the drive can be made online at www.GiveSalvationArmy.org .
