Even though it's just the middle of July, families have already started to think about their kids going back to school. Sounds like fun and love for some people, but it's definitely stressful for many - especially those who cannot afford everything their kids need.

We're so glad that a Valley nonprofit is hoping to change that.

We're talking about HELP - Homeless Engagement Lift Partnership - a Phoenix-based nonprofit that usually focuses on helping Arizona's homeless. They did a little shift now and focus on the kids as well.

"We work with the homeless advocates at 19 school districts and through that, we are able to help the families. They vet them, we know they need help, and so we in return, we can help them." - HELP's spokesperson

The nonprofit is teaming up with M3 Commercial Moving and Logistics for a back-to-school drive.

"We are picking up stuff all the time, donating it to local charities, about 30,000 pounds every single month. We think, you know, that is not the only way we can give back to the community with our infrastructure of trucks and men and lifting every single day." - Spokesperson for M3 Commercial Moving and Logistics.

The company is contributing their time and space to store the supplies donated.

Spokesperson added:

"We're using our warehouse space to store all the items and deliver them out to help to get engaged there."

HELP says the need for help is bigger than ever before. It increased even more due to COVID.

"Our rise for the schools we are serving in the 19 school districts is 65% more that need help, so it's a huge need for our community." - HELP's spokesperson

The drive runs through July 31.
