- Three-ring binders

Supplies can be given to volunteers on site or donations can be placed directly into boxes on the school bus. Dorr says the amount of donated supplies has increased every year, and this year the hope is to exceed $10,000 worth. The drive is being held everyday this week from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
