It's kind of hard to believe, considering Winter just ended like ten minutes ago, but it's already time to start thinking about heading back to school. And that means back-to-school shopping.

Unfortunately, getting the basic necessities can get expensive, for both students and teachers (especially teachers). Luckily, there's a way you can help in the Quad Cities, starting today!

According to KWQC, the QC First Day Project school supply drive has officially begun. Anything that's dropped off will go straight to supporting students in grades K-12.

Here's a few things they need this year:

- Backpacks
-Notebooks
-Erasers
-Glue Sticks
-Pocket Folders
-Rulers
-Scissors
-Watercolor Paints

You can check out the full list here. The next question is, where can you drop the stuff off? We got that too:
