Officer Collects Backpacks for Community In Need
One Marked Tree police officer is looking to relieve the burden of back to school shopping.
Sergeant Eric Jackson will be gave out 350 backpacks filled with school supplies on July 28th at the Marked Tree Police Department.
Backpacks varied from kindergarten to high school supplies.
This was made possible by money from Jackson’s pocket and community support.
Dollar general and the Thin Blue Line Foundation helped with donations.
Jackson was inspired to start the drive after seeing a need in the community while on the job.
