EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — A nonprofit will be giving away free school supplies to help low-income families from Aug. 23 to Aug. 26 at the House of Soles in East Lansing.

With a donation from Lake Trust Credit Union, the Honey Bear Project hopes to ease the burden of purchasing school supplies for local families in need.

The Honey Bear Project will provide free House of Soles drawstring backpacks filled with pens, pencils, notebooks and more.

“We want to help kids start the school year off ready to study,” said Lonnie and Lennie Smith, co-owners of the House of Soles.
