Volunteers from Perry and Spencer Counties will man the doors at Wal-Mart this Friday and Saturday to remind shoppers that local school children of struggling families are in need of new school supplies to get them started on the right foot this year. United Way of Perry County and the Tell City Wal-Mart have partnered to help our local school children in need have the supplies their families can't afford since 2007. Each year thousands of supplies are donated to each school system and Head Start in Perry County and to North Spencer Schools. School counselors distribute the supplies to children on the free or reduced lunch program.
"Stuff the Bus" lets all students start out on the same playing field with the supplies they need to succeed. Won't you help us "Stuff the Bus?"
"Stuff the Bus" will be held in Perry County on Friday and Saturday, July 20 & 21 from 8:00 AM through 8:00 PM both days at the Tell City Wal-Mart.
"Stuff the Bus" will be held to benefit Crawford and Harrison County students on Friday, July 27 from 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM and on Saturday, July 28 from 8:00 - noon at the Corydon Wal-Mart.
