A local church is stepping up to provide school supplies to needy children in and around La Feria.
First United Methodist Church in La Feria collects school supplies every year.
But recent headlines about a mother getting arrested for stealing school supplies has moved church members.
Church member Andi Atkinson told Action 4 News that the church will collect and distribute school supplies to anyone in need in the Mid-Valley or Harlingen area.
Anyone willing to donate is asked to go to the church at 318 South East Street in downtown La Feria.
Contact Pastor Harold Raymond at (956) 797-1393 for more information.
