Cost Of School Supplies Prohibitive For Some Families

school supplies
Gene J. Puskar

Back to school season can be one of jittery nerves or unabashed excitement for students who are timid or eager about returning to the classroom after a long summer break. For some families, the new school year also brings about an influx of costs – and a serious financial burden.

Local organizations in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati are stepping up to ease that burden for low-income families. Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss are Campbell Connection/Families in Transition Coordinator Megan VonHandorf; St. Vincent DePaul Cincinnati Director of Social Services Mary Reid; and Be Concerned Executive Director Andy Brunsman.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
