ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - I don't remember how much back to school supplies cost when I was a kid. That's probably because I wasn't paying the bill.

The cost of back to school supplies can take a toll on a family with financial struggles. Thankfully, there are a number of agencies that raise money year-round to purchase supplies for families who could use a little help.

So, thanks to anyone who has helped a struggling student get off to a good start. That good start could pay off in the long run.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
