Come Monday, you'll see something unusual on Howard Street in Hibbing. At 1pm, a covered wagon will be making its way down the main drag. It's goal? Collect school supplies for kids in need.

"We were looking for a community project, and our client base also works with the Salvation Army quite frequently. So we are working together, to help local kids," said Don Brunette, executive director of AccessNorth. He told us other community partners are also working on this project.

An employee at AccessNorth owns a covered wagon. So she brought it to work, and staff decorated it with school supplies.

After the wagon makes its four mile trip from Howard Street to AccessNorth, it will sit at the company for a week. You can make your donations through the week as well.

"We're anticipating even more need than last year, and last year we served 130 kids," said Nancy Massich, from the Salvation Army. "We want every child to start the year with optimism."
