Everything from backpacks to classroom cleaning supplies were collected over the last couple of weeks. In fact, thousands of items for students to use during the new school year were donated.

Friday afternoon, our employees helped sort through all of the supplies before they're hand delivered to area schools next week.

We also want to thank our sponsors who helped us collect your supplies: all Bay County Domino's Pizza locations, Counts Real Estate Group, Peaden Air Conditioning and Berg Pipe at Port Panama City.

We couldn't have done this without any of you!
