Stuff the Bus

Our Stuff the Bus initiative to donate, collect, sort, and fill backpacks with school supplies for kids K-2 in select Title I schools in Columbus, Phenix City and Russell County was a success!  We delivered 2,277 filled backpacks to the designated schools for distribution.

Thanks to everyone that helped to make this successful!
