PAULS VALLEY, Okla. -- On the first day of school in Pauls Valley, local non-profit Love PV wanted to make sure students and teachers had everything they needed when that first bell sounded.

"It's a huge blessing for us," said Principal Kristi Herd. "It's nice to live in a community that they are so supportive of our kids. It's been beneficial to the kids and to the parents that they don't have to supply those."

Those involved with Love PV and some extra volunteers shopped during the summer for the supplies and shipped the materials to schools in the area, and they made sure to get supplies for all students.

"From pre-K all the way up to high school, we covered all the supplies that the teachers requested," said Love PV president Callie Henry. 

Love PV raised close to $60,000 to make this supply drive possible, and it was accomplished with the help of local businesses and even a festival. All proceeds went toward the supply drive

"That's just a good place that we were able to kind of showcase local businesses and talent and bring everybody together," Henry said. "It's kind of been a source of pride for our community. People are excited to do something together to help our kids."

Love PV hopes to continue this initiative for years to come.
