London police are teaming up with the United Way of London and Middlesex to help students go back to school, prepared.

Until Aug. 17, the two organizations are accepting donations to fill backpacks with what is needed to help students succeed.

“Our goal is to help as many children as possible by assisting in the collection of back-to-school supplies, so the students will have everything they need when they return to school in September,” said Const. Sandasha Bough, corporate communications and public relations officer with the police.

Needed donations include lunch bags, exercise books, rulers, round-tip scissors, pencil sharpeners, glue sticks, pencil crayons, erasers, duotangs, binders, pens, pencil cases, markers, dividers, three-hole lined paper, wax crayons, reusable snack or drink containers, calculators or scientific calculators, pencils and highlighters.

Those wanting to help can drop off items at London police headquarters, 601 Dundas St., or at the London Police Association office at 330 William St.
