A staple of the Salvation Army's annual efforts to serve underprivileged families in the Tri-State is preparing for its 30th year.

The "Stuff the Bus" campaign, which collects school supplies for area students and classrooms is teaming up with Walmart locations once again.

According to the Salvation Army, the partnership with the big box retailer allows the organization to serve 23 million families, through a range of services, in hopes of ending poverty and economic hardships.

Beginning Friday, Aug 7, the Salvation Army will be collecting specific school supplies for area students outside select locations.

Some of the items on many back-to-school lists include flashcards, folders, three-ring binders, pens and pencils, as well as backpacks.

Volunteers will be set up outside Walmart locations throughout the Tri-State filling a school bus over several days.

They urge shoppers to pick a few extra items on the wish list this year, as they do their back to school shopping.

The school supply collection will run through Sunday, Aug 9.
