300 children still need backpacks, supplies

The school year has started, but 300 children are still without backpacks and school supplies.

Service for Peace teamed up with several retailers like Target and handed out 600 backpacks before school started.  They went to children in Louisville and Southern Indiana.

But with the slow economy, the program still needs 300 backpacks.  Some schools are seeing children showing up with no backpacks or school supplies.

They say it can affect a child's self-esteem.
