Education officials in the Owensboro area are teaming up to "Stuff the Bus" once again.
Daviess County Public Schools and Owensboro Public Schools are inviting the public to support students across the Daviess County community by donating school supplies during the fifth annual Stuff the Bus event on Thursday, July 29.
On July 29, school buses from both districts will be located in the parking lots of the two Owensboro Walmart stores on Frederica Street and Leitchfield Road from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Family Resource/Youth Service Center representatives from both districts will be on-site to collect the donations and load the buses.
Lists of requested school supplies will be available but donations of all kinds are welcome.
Organizers say items that would help a local child begin the school year include:
- Paper (loose leaf and notebooks)
- Pencils, pens, highlighters, crayons
- School glue
- Folders and binders
During the previous "Stuff the Bus" event in Owensboro, over $8,000 worth of school supplies was donated, with more than $1,300 in cash donations made as well.
