"Inside of the backpack, there are notebooks and erasers and glue. Things that, you know, parents are maybe not going to have the money for right now because of them being displaced from the tornado and having to move," said Nikki McCurtain, Plaza Towers teacher. "It's just one less thing they have to worry about, and one less thing that we have to worry about too."

Class in Moore officially begins on Friday.
