The Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy center is doing their annual drive to collect back to school supplies for kids in grades K through 12. Any school items are needed such as backpacks, paper, pencils, crayons, scissors, rulers, spiral notebooks and other school items.



“The school supplies will benefit kids in need from Okaloosa and Walton Counties, as well as kids from any of our partner agencies,” said ECCAC CEO, Julie Hurst.



They are asking that any donations be delivered to the Niceville Center, 401 McEwen Drive, by Aug. 10.



ECCAC’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect children in Okaloosa and Walton Counties, and restore the lives and futures of these impacted children. Call Katie Crowell for more information at 850-833-9237, ext. 256, or email katie@eccac.org.
