A local car dealership is donating hundreds of backpacks to children in need.
On Wednesday, employees with Dolan Automotive Group stuffed 400 backpacks with schools supplies at the Boys and Girls Club of the Truckee Meadows before about 100 kids showed up to collect them.
The rest will be distributed throughout the area.
The Boys and Girls Club helped pick out children who could use the supplies.
"It's going to give them all the basic essentials they need for school and for some of our members that's as simple as paper or pencils and glue," says David Taylor.
Dolan Automotive Group came up with the idea for the giveaway after they had leftover backpacks from a promotion.
