Spouses of police officers fill school backpacks – The Reporter

By Jessica Rogness

The spouses of Vacaville police officers raised nearly $1,300 to fill 34 backpacks for Vacaville children in need this week.

The effort was the first fundraising event for the Vacaville Law Enforcement Wives Organization.

Members of the organization set up a table the past two weekends to collect school supplies and cash donations in exchange for free movie passes. A large portion of those donations were given by families of Vacaville police officers and firefighters.

They were able to stock 34 backpacks for children who need them.


“Everything you can possibly imagine,” Bruce Simpson said of the supplies inside the packs. “If there’s a school supply, it’s in there.”
