SALT LAKE CITY -- There are thousands of underprivileged and at-risk students who face difficulties and limitations as they prepare to return to school this year.

Many are going without proper nutrition, clothing and other essential items.

The Teleperformance Company along with Feed the Children are hoping to make a difference by providing free backpacks and supplies.

In the upcoming weeks the program will provide more than 2,500 backpacks to local students in need.
