The Maitland Police Department's annual school supply drive wraps up this Wednesday, Aug. 3, with a big Stuff the Truck event from 2 to 4 p.m. at Blackbird Comics and Coffeehouse, 500 E. Horatio Ave. in downtown Maitland.
Donate needed school items to fill the police cruiser - backpacks, folders, crayons, pencils, rulers, glue, erasers and paper. All contributions benefit students at Maitland's elementary and middle schools. Meet Maitland police officers.
