POLICE ATHLETIC LEAGUE DONATES BACKPACKS, SUPPLIES FOR STUDENTS

Backpack Giveaway

Tuscaloosa city and county schools return to class next week, but the Tuscaloosa Police Department’s Police Athletic League spent today ensuring students don’t go back empty-handed.

The organization handed out more than 350 backpacks filled with school supplies today at the PAL gym.

Parent Markeshia Sesson said it’s a huge help not having to shell out for all those required supplies.

“School supplies are very expensive, and so are clothes,” she said. “So it is really a big help.”
