SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) - Cool temperatures prove that fall is near. That means it’s back to school time and Utah kids need your help.

Anne Williams from Intrepid talks about its back-to-school drive.

The Road Home Apple Tree is a campaign to collect new back-to-school clothing, shoes and backpacks for more than 100 children living in The Road Home Shelter, a Salt Lake family homeless shelter.

Over the past four weeks, patrons at local retailers Old Navy, Payless, Staples and DownEast have donated thousands of items for the kids at The Road Home shelter. The clothing drive began this week.

Volunteers will sort through all the donations to determine what else is needed. We will shop for the extra items needed in the next couple of days.
