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)
  • Scissors
  • Pencils, pens, highlighters, crayons
  • Backpacks
  • School glue
  • Rulers
  • Folders and binders
  • Calculators

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.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
