A group working to collect school supplies for Escambia County students in need will be passing out vouchers to parents over the next week.

Peggy Ray with the Escambia Baptist Association said the “Supplying Students for Success” program will be handing out vouchers for a free backpack filled with school supplies today, as well as June 20 and 29 at select churches across the county for students in kindergarten through fourth grade.

Parents can pick up vouchers at Brooks Memorial Baptist Church in Atmore; Flomaton First Baptist Church; Little Escambia Baptist Church; Liberty Baptist Church; Alco Baptist Church; East Brewton Baptist Church; and Zion Hill Baptist Church from 10 a.m. until noon.
