(KSL News) -- A local cookie store is asking the public to donate any extra school supplies that may be lying around the house.
For every pound of school supplies you donate at Ben's Cookies in the Gateway, you will get a free cookie.
All of the supplies will than be given to the Road Home - a program that helps families get off the streets and educates children.
Matt Minkevitch, The Road Home: "So many of the kids that are coming into the shelter, of course are coming in behind their clasmates. So we don't want to add additional burden by not having the supplies that they need in order to keep up."
Joel Clark, Ben's Cookies: "We import all of our chocolate from Belgium. So if you look at our chocolate chunks, they're huge. We use the best chocolate that we can get, so that really makes our cookies excellent."
They are asking for paper, pencils, computers and calculators.
