Salvation Army Sorting Donated School Supplies

Aug. 12, 2014

The Salvation Army rounded up about 15 bins Tuesday from various sponsor locations, each containing donated school supplies to help needy children start off the school year fresh.

The supplies will go to about 4,000 students in the Charlottesville Albemarle County school districts.

Volunteers will spend this week sorting and packing up boxes for schools to pick up on Friday.

"This time of year we want our kids to have the best for educational wise, that's why it's so important for us to pitch in and help the community," says Lisa Chapman, volunteer.

Folks are still needed to help volunteer this week, especially on Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

If you're interested in volunteering to help pack and sort, you can call the Salvation Army at 434-295-4058 extension 114.
