Daviess County Public Schools and Owensboro Public Schools are asking the public to support students across the Owensboro community as they prepare for the start of the new school year.
In the fourth annual "Stuff the Bus" event on Friday, Aug 7, school buses from both districts will be in the parking lots of two local Walmart stores, accepting donations of school supplies that will go directly to students.
Those who wish to donate school supplies to students in the Owensboro community can visit the following two locations until 5:00 p.m. on Friday:
- 5031 Frederica St
- 3151 Kentucky 54
Supplies may be purchased at any store but will be collected during the Stuff the Bus event at those two Owensboro Walmart locations.
Items that would help a local child begin the school year ready-to-learn include:
- Paper (loose leaf and notebooks)
- Pencils, pens, highlighters, crayons
- School Glue
- Folders and binders
List of school supplies that are recommended for various grade levels will be available inside both Stuff the Bus locations. "Wish lists" will also be available at the school buses.
Students in the Owensboro Public Schools district will head back to class starting Aug 24, while Daviess County Public Schools students will return to class on Aug 26, each district with its own set of safety guidelines in place to keep students and staff healthy.
