Mid-South public school students living at or below poverty level often lack the supplies they need to go back to school prepared for success. United Way of the Mid-South has teamed with co-sponsors Kellogg’s, SOS Partners in Education and Walmart to invite Fayette County and the entire Mid-South to donate needed supplies for our STUFF THE BUS school supply drive during July and August.
The bus will be located at Walmart Super Center, 105 Chickasaw Ridge Drive in Oakland, TN. The bus will be open for donations July 25 thru 28 and again from August 1 thru 4, from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
The STUFF THE BUS drive is exactly what its name implies – we want to fill a parked school bus with school supplies to help children enter the new academic year with everything they need to succeed. You can find a list of items students need in the Walmart store and online at http://www.fcsk12.net
The official launch for STUFF THE BUS will take place this Saturday, July 27 at 9:00 a.m. The Fayette Ware Wildcats High School Band will perform. Refreshments will be available for purchase (and all proceeds will raise funds for uniforms and equipment)! Donate at least $5.00 and you’ll receive a complimentary Kroger Company gift bag. There will be face painting, baloon animals, snow cones, music and more. If you would like to volunteer or donate, please contact Karen Todd (Kroger Company) at 901.853.5311 ext. 249.
