The Waterloo Regional Police Service put out the challenge out to the community at the end of July.

To fill backpacks with new gear for kids when they head back to school in September.

And the community came through in a big way.

Police say close to 1,400 backpacks were donated during the month long campaign, which supports the local Family & Children’s Services Foundation's Back to School Assistance Program.

Police started making deliveries on Monday morning.
