It’s time again to ‘Pack the Patrol Car’ with school supplies

Can you believe it? The next school year is just three weeks away, and the Davis Police Department is gearing up for its ninth annual “Pack the Patrol Car” fundraiser, in which local residents are asked to donate backpacks filled with school supplies for children in need.

Continuing through Friday, Aug. 8, donations may be dropped off at Davis Police Department, 2600 Fifth St., Monday through Thursday between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Backpacks may be deposited in the designated red collection container just inside the lobby.

“We are hoping the Davis community will come forward to help those families in need, as they have so generously done in the past,” said Trease Petersen, the Police Department’s youth intervention specialist. “It is such a simple gift that means so much to students of all ages, from elementary school to high school.”

Donors are asked to purchase a backpack and fill it with the following basic supplies:

* One three-ring binder
* One package of filler paper
* One pack of five-tab insert dividers
* Two spiral notebooks
* Two pocket folders
* One pencil pouch
* One 12-pack of No. 2 pencils (mechanical or regular)
* One 12-pack of Crayola basic colored pencils
* One 24-pack of Crayola basic colored crayons
* One pack of erasers
* One 3-pack of glue sticks
* One ruler
* One pair of small or medium-sized scissors
* One pack of highlighters
* One pencil sharpener
* One pack of pens (blue or black)
* Calculator

Patrol officers will deliver the filled backpacks to Davis elementary, junior high and high schools on their beats before the start of the school year, Petersen said. School staff members will then determine the families most in need and present the students with their new backpacks.

“The look on the children’s faces when they receive their new backpack filled with supplies is priceless. They are so appreciative,” Petersen said.

For more information, contact Petersen at 530-747-5432 or [email protected]
