New and slightly used school supplies have been donated by hundreds of students throughout northwest Indiana and southwest Michigan.
A man name Ted Bryant from Granger started a program called "Greenlockers."
The concept is simple. Instead of students cleaning out their lockers and tossing everything at the end of the school year, they put it in donation containers to be recycled and given to kids who need them.

"Instead of throwing everything away, they can donate it," says Bryant.
And donate they have. Thousands of crayons, hundreds of colored pencils, bins full of paper, notebooks, folders, and binders, clothes...piles of them, shoes and much more.
A warehouse in Elkhart on U.S. 6 is full of supplies, 20,000 pounds worth.
"It's a completely free exchange," says Bryant, who is the founder of "Greenlockers," a non-profit organization that takes donated new or used school supplies and passes them on to local charities and teachers...all for free.
