The club's goal is to raise enough school supplies for local families who are in need

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Raider Nation Outlawz held their second annual Back to School Drive for local students on Saturday.

The club raised money and received various donations to provide about 300 children with school supplies.

Raider Nation Outlawz's Vice President Victor Torres, says they hit well above their goal, totaling almost 400 supplies.

The drive was held at Kennedy Memorial Park from 3-7 pm where they handed out backpacks filled with school necessities.

The club says giving back to the community is important to the members.

"We want to make sure that everyone who doesn't have enough, when we have more than enough, we can actually give it. We want to give back," says Torres. "We want to make sure every kid has a book, has a bag, everything they need for school. School's one of the most important things for anybody."

Torres says if you would like to contribute, they are still taking donations to help as many kids in need as possible.
