Lynchburg, VA - Delegate Scott Garrett was busy Friday helping area kids get ready for the new school year.
Garrett was helping to organize school supplies that locals donated - getting them ready for delivery to Lynchburg area schools.
He was at the transportation warehouse making sure the notebooks, pens and crayons that you donated August 4 get to where they are needed.
"We collected a little over $5,000 worth of supplies for the schools in Amherst County, Bedford County, and the city of Lynchburg. We are here today to package these so they can be distributed to our schools to the children and the teachers who frankly need these sources," said Garrett.
Garrett says he is proud of the community for donating so much and is appreciative of the volunteers who made it possible.
