SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Several organizations held free school supplies giveaways for students around the Shreveport area on Saturday. Parents say that amid rising inflation, the supplies relieved some of their financial burdens. 'Times are hard right now. Prices have went up on everything,' says Shreveport parent Oranda Stewart. The mother of four attended the Hattie Perry Recreation Center's drive-thru Back to School Bash. Organizer Rashad Bristo says the supplies were categorized into elementary and middle school or junior and high school students.
