A WSLS follow up on the Rally for the Valley basketball tournament where teams of teachers and police played each other at Lucy Addison Middle School.
Organizers say it was a success. They raised about 1800 items that will go to homeless children in Roanoke schools. Roanoke City schools have seen a more than 4-percent increase in the number of homeless students over last year. Currently they have 447 homeless students.
The items were taken to the Roanoke Rescue Mission where they will be given out.
We're told Roanoke College Coach Page Moir stopped by and donated some clothes, basketballs, and passes to some Roanoke College games too.
