WHITEHOUSE (KYTX) - Teachers are gearing up for the start of the new school year. Many of them will be digging deep into their own wallets to help pay for school supplies.
The Whitehouse Chamber of Commerce is making those expenses a little lighter through a goodie bag supply drive. Those with the chamber are calling on local businesses and community members to help fill small backpacks full of supplies.
They'll go to the new teachers at Whitehouse ISD this year.
New teachers often have to start their supply stash from scratch, so donations are a big help.
Whitehouse ISD welcomes 53 new teachers this year.
