(WDEF) The Samaritan Center gets ready to stock lockers across Hamilton County.
     The Ooltewah non-profit is now scheduling appointments for its annual Stock Their Lockers campaign.
     Kids who qualify for the program get a brand new back-pack...
     And they get to "shop" for the school supplies to fill it up.
     Last year the Samaritan Center gave school supplies to more than 200 kids in  Hamilton County.
     Sharon Smith-Hensley with the Samaritan Center said, "Just call our Samaritan Center number 238-7777 and they ask for an appointment.  They have to live in our service area, which is the eastern third of Hamilton County.  We'll set them up with a case worker and set them up for an evaluation to validate their need."
     Kids will be stocking their lockers at the Samaritan Center back to school shop through August 13th.
