United Way “Stuff the Bus” Returns
Are you ready to help “Stuff the Bus” to help families in need?  United Way of Perry County is once again sponsoring its eighth annual “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive for our area’s students in need.  United Way, Wal-Mart, and area volunteers are partnering to collect donations of much needed school supplies for all Perry County school corporations and Perry County Head Start.  


Last year’s two day event gathered more than 4,485 items valued at approximately $4,096.  Additional cash donations of $2,440 were also received, bringing the value of all donations to over $6,536 for our friends and neighbors in need.  Won’t you help us fill the backpacks of the hundreds of children in our area who need supplies?  


We will be “Stuffing the Bus” on Friday, July 25 from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, July 26 from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Tell City Wal-Mart.  Donations will be accepted by volunteers both days.  All supplies will be distributed to children in need by the local schools. Local businesses are encouraged to have their own “Stuff the Bus” collections.  Our volunteers will be happy to pick up your donations prior to July 25th.
