Detention officers organized the school supply drive as a way to help families who are not only busy trying to rebuild their homes but get their children ready for another school year.

"I was very impressed with the outcome we received," said Carrie Davis, Chief of Detention. "We appreciate all the support from the public in helping the Cleveland County wildfire victims."

Chief Davis said the detention staff collected enough supplies to divide between Lexington, Little Axe and Noble public schools. Detention officers delivered supplies to the schools on Wednesday and Thursday.
