Long lines at school supply giveaway in Olympia

Long lines at school supply giveaway in Olympia

Hundreds of parents and kids arrived at Capitol High School in Olympia this morning to pick up free school supplies and clothing.

These photos were sent in to KOMO around 9 a.m. this morning showing long lines already forming.

The annual event organized by the Little Red Schoolhouse served about 3,000 Thurston County kids last year.

The event runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 2707 Conger Ave NW. Proof of financial need is not required, but kids must be enrolled in a Thurston County school.
