Sherriff Jeff Dirske joined members of the Sheriff’s Department at Cunningham Elementary on Tuesday to distribute the supplies (PAWAN NAIDU/The Journal).

Members of the Stanislaus County Sherriff’s office delivered back-to-school supplies collected with the help of its STARS volunteer officers to elementary schools across the county on Tuesday. Thousands of dollars in were donated to provide backpacks, notebooks and other supplies, as well as hand sanitizers for local schools. The Stanislaus County Office of Education helped the Sheriff’s Office identify schools most in need of donated supplies.
