MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Moultrie Police are collecting donated school supplies for students in need. 

The police department is hosting its Stuff the School Bus event in front of the Walmart on Veterans Parkway. 

Officers need packs of paper, pencils and backpacks. 

The supplies collected will be distributed to local schools for students who are not able to purchase supplies. 

Officer Sandra Matthews said that these items mean a whole lot to the kids. 

"It gives them encouragement to let them know that not just their parents but somebody else is willing to help. Somebody else is willing to, not just help in a bad way, but in a good way. So they see us in a good light," said Matthews.

The event will continue until 7 p.m. Thursday night.
