JACKSBORO, Tenn. (WVLT)-- In less than a month thousands of kids will head back to school but some may not be able to afford the supplies they'll need. However, the Campbell County Sheriff's department is here to help.

They will be in front of the Jacksboro Walmart on Friday, July 26, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. till 9:00 p.m.
