One more opportunity to say "thank you," and a final request for a contribution to buy school supplies for students from families struggling in a difficult economy.

Generous Times readers have brightened the start of another school year for thousands of grateful students. Thank you, again and again.

The first few days back to school also reveal the extraordinary need that exists in the community. Students are arriving empty-handed, without needed supplies or lunch.

Contributions to the annual editorial-page school-supplies campaign of The Seattle Times Fund for the Needy help make a difference now and through the school year.

Donations help provide the tools of learning for late arrivals, transfer students and those in homeless shelters and transitional housing.

Your gifts provide the grade-appropriate supplies that fill backpacks and let needy students seamlessly fit into their classroom surroundings.

Contributions are divided among three excellent agencies: Hopelink, the YWCA of Seattle-King County-Snohomish County and the Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness.

Their volunteers have already organized and distributed the supplies your gifts made possible.

The need remains. Thank you for another generous demonstration of community concern and support for educating the next generation.
