United Way's annual Stuff the Bus initiative kicked off June 15th. Corporate volunteers, individuals and the community at large will be donating new school supplies and backpacks for children in kindergarten - 2nd grade. These will then be distributed to 33 area Title 1 schools.
There will be a community-wide collection day at Stars & Strikes on Saturday, July 15th and a community-wide collection day at Peachtree Mall, Saturday July 22nd. Volunteers will help sort supplies and fill backpacks the week of July 24th. Backpacks will then be delivered to schools August 2-3.
There are a couple 2-hour shifts still available for volunteers that want to help sort school supplies and fill backpacks on July 25th and July 27th. If you'd like to help, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 705-327-3255 ext 212.
