CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - People started lining up 2 hours early to get free back-to-school supplies in Cedar Rapids.

The Cedar Rapids Salvation Army and H-D youth Center held its annual Back to School Backpack Project. This year, it gave out twice as many backpacks as last year - all filled with pens, notebooks and more.

Organizers say buying new items for school can get expensive, especially for some families.

“There are so many other things out there that families need to purchase like food and electricity and going to school should not be a burden on the kids, shouldn’t be a burden on the parents and this helps eliminate that,” said Lia Pontarelli with the Salvation Army.

The Cedar Rapids West Rotary helped raise the $10,000 to buy backpacks.
