An Air Force Officer and his family are focused on helping less fortunate kids in Afghanistan with school supplies.

Lieutenant Colonel Brent Morris was deployed there last year. While he was there, he heard about other American soldiers donating to schools and immediately wanted to help.

"I said that sounds like something we could work on. I sent an e-mail to my wife. That's how Colorado for Kabul Kids got started," said Lt. Col. Brent Morris.

Soon after donations started coming in, boxes full of backpacks were sent to the National Military Academy of Afghanistan.

"What is really neat is this is for the kids," said Lt. Col. Morris.

Since June, Lieutenant Colonel Morris says he and his family have helped more than 650 kids.

"Their own school supplies are a treasure chest. They'll go along way," said Lt. Col. Morris.

Lieutenant Colonel Morris says he would like to help more students in Kabul.
