They're taking up donations of basic school supplies like pencils, glue, and paper, as well as cleaning supplies for the classroom. Due to the pandemic, teachers will be going through more hand sanitizer and sanitation wipes this school year.

Morgan County Sheriff's Office PIO Mike Swafford said, "It is a premium to be able to get Clorox wipes, Lysol wipes, those types of things, so any time we get those, it's definitely a big high five to that donor."
