The Salvation Army in Charlottesville joined with other organizations around the community to raise supplies during this year's school drive.
The supplies go to children, 1st through 8th grade, who are in need for the school year.
Volunteers helped sort out book bags, notebooks, paper, glue and crayons this morning for different schools, but they noticed that there was a drop in donations compared to last year.
"Seems like we got a lot of donations, but the barrels aren't full anyway, some of them were half full and I think three of them were full," says Will Gouldman, volunteer at the Salvation Army. "We still have a lot of stuff I just don't know how many people will need the stuff...I just hope there's enough for everybody."
The Salvation Army is still accepting donations for the school year until 4 o'clock Thursday evening. School buses are expected to pick up the supplies on Friday morning.
The Salvation Army is located on 207 Ridge Street in Charlottesville.
