CTCHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (8/12/19) — Madisonville Police Department officers, Hopkins County Sheriff’s deputies and members of MPD Citizens Police Unit collected $13,000 in school supplies and monetary donations for area children.

The recent charity drive was held at Walmart in Hanson, which was MPD’s 9th Annual Cram the Cruiser event.

Officers said Hopkins County residents came forward in being a part of the solution to help kids start school on Wednesday with the right tools.

MPD CPU members sorted all the items, which were then delivered to Hopkins County Assistance Center-Pennyrile Allied Community Services office in Madisonville. A final count of packaged school supply items totaled 6,173, MPD said.

The PACS office distributed the supplies to school resource centers across Hopkins County.
