SALISBURY, Md.- On Wednesday, people from all across Delmarva came out to Rising Tide locations to drop off school supplies for those in need. Thursday's count of all four drop off locations showed 314 backpacks, 90 of which were already donated with supplies inside of them. Plus 72 boxed filled with thousands of supplies.

Kevin Webster is not just unloading supplies, he's helping to make a difference.

"One thing that you know, I noticed when I was  kid, the kids that didn't have were a little embarrassed because they didn't now they don't have to go without," he said.

Box by box, step by step, Sherwood employees began to count Wednesday's surpises. 

Katie Maxwell, marketing director at Sherwood, says the outcome of the event is inspiring.

"The most amazing part about this and everybody was saying this is we were sorting it, it's amazing, people's generosity. It's crazy to think that this one day everybody came together and brought this much stuff," she said.

Thursday's vans filled with collected material will make their way to the Salisbury Rotary Club and the Boys & Girl's Clubs in Delaware who will then give the supplies to schools.
