‘Stuff The Bus’ planned for July 21
The annual ‘Stuff the Bus’ campaign is scheduled for Wednesday, July 21, and again will be held at Pilgrim’s Foodliner Grocery Store in DeKalb.
This annual event is an effort to help families as their students head back to school next month. Volunteers will be on hand to collect school supplies, backpacks, and new or slightly used school uniforms for elementary school aged students. Monetary donations will also be accepted.
A Kemper County school bus will be parked in front of the store from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and volunteers will be available to accept donations.
All school supplies and uniform donations collected will be given to Kemper County’s three elementary schools for distribution to the children. Churches, organizations and businesses are also asked to solicit their members for donations and drop them off at the drop off location that day. Your donations will support elementary aged children as they return to school.
For more information contact Loretta Hulin, Kemper County Coordinator for Stuff the Bus on 601-416-8279.
Stuff the bus is sponsored by the United Way of East Mississippi.
