The Stuff the Bus Campaign Needs Your Dollars – No Drop Boxes This Year
Jim & Lisa had Jennifer Lewis on this morning to tell us about the Stuff the Bus Campaign this year. The big difference this year is COVID-19 of course, it has changed the way we do so many things and Stuff the Bus is no different.
Normally you would see donation boxes all of the city in various retail locations, but thanks to the "Rona" that method is out this year. Instead, the United Way of Greater Texarkana has already purchased what will be needed to help the students get started in school or at home this coming school year. The backpacks will still be put together by volunteers but a much smaller group.
What we need to do is help United Way recoup the money they have already spent for the program and you can do that by making a simple donation at the link below.
Or you can stop by the United Way offices located at
214 Spruce St.
For more information call 903-794-3105.
The Stuff the Bus program has worked for the last 11 years directly with school administration, civic organizations, and businesses throughout our community to identify students in need in over 10 school districts in Texas and Arkansas.
