Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- One day ahead of its annual school supply distribution, the United Way says the community's support has been overwhelming.

Tomorrow, they will give out 4,500 backpacks filled with school supplies to area children.

Today, they finished the sixty hour process of filling the backpacks in preparation for the event.

Any Cass or Clay County K-12 student in need is eligible to receive school supplies.

Courtney Jones- Community Impact Associate: "The response has been absolutely overwhelming from the community. Our volunteer shifts filled within a week. That's 500 spots, completely full in a week. We were actually at goal, as far as backpacks go, as of Wednesday this week, which has never happened before."

The distribution goes from eight to eleven thirty tomorrow morning at the Fargodome.
