TALLAHASSEE, Fla.(WTXL)Pack the Patrol Car — The Tallahassee Police Department is hosting its annual “Pack the Patrol Car” event on Saturday, August 1.

The event will be held Aug.1, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at West Marine, located at 2110 Apalachee Parkway.

This year’s goal is to collect enough school supplies to provide at least 200 students with the necessary materials to start the school year.

The community can help by dropping off new, unused school supplies, such as backpacks, paper, pencils, pens, notebooks, folders, protractors and more.

TPD says all donations will be provided to local students in need.

To protect community health, this event will be a drive-through drop off only. Social distancing and masks will be used by event staff.

Pack the Patrol Car 2020 is hosted in partnership with West Marine, the Tallahassee Fire Department, Leon County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Highway Patrol, 100 Black Men of Tallahassee, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), Southside Rotary Club and NOBLE (National Organization for Black Law Enforcement Executives).
