Some locals are making sure that doesn't happen to Wiregrass students.
Local author Renee Williams along with several of her friends, connected with different schools in the area to find out what they needed for the upcoming year.
With their own money, they bought and donated the supplies to PASS Academy.
Willams says she just felt the need to help her community.
"Well actually my son attended here a few years back. The main reason for us doing this, we wanted to give back and they said they don't have a PTA program, " says Williams.
Williams is currently reaching out to additional schools to see what she can do to help.
