LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Officers joined forces Sunday to help collect items for students before school starts.

Today was the Cram a Cruiser event hosted by the Nelson County FOP. It was at the Walmart in Bardstown, Ky.

The officers collected several items, including shoes, pens, backpacks and money donations.

Officers say they're just trying to give back to the community that has shown support over the years.

"The need here is pretty bad," said FOP member Robert Kelly. "With employment down, it's pretty bad. We're just trying to do what we can."

Donations can still be accepted. Just take them directly to any school in Nelson County. 

The supplies will be divided up between city and county schools.
