The "Fill a Backpack, Fill a Need" campaign collected school supplies for less fortunate kids over the summer.

The Workplace Volunteer Council collected thousands of school supplies from area businesses and individuals. They have enough to fill nearly 2,500 backpacks.

"We had to sort out the notebooks, and the pencils, then we loaded up all the different backpacks based on the age group that the backpack would go for," says Kelly Zagrzebski of the Workplace Volunteer Council.

The backpacks will be distributed to area kids Saturday morning.
