We received the following notes of thanks after completing our Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive from some of the staff members from Cannelton Elementary. Many thanks so all our teachers, school staff, and community volunteers who helped collect the donations last July....they mean a lot to our community!
"...Some of our students do not have the means to acquire all (or any) of the items on the required school supply list for the start of the year. ... Some children are embarrassed to come to school with nothing. This program is such a blessing for those students who cannot afford much." Mikki Garrett, 1st grade, and Lora Melton, 2nd grade, Cannelton Elementary School
"Stuff the Bus is a wonderful opportunity for our school to supply each student with the tools they need for a successful day. ...I love to tell the worried students, 'Don't worry, we have everything you need!' You can see the look of relief on their face. The money given helps fill in the gaps with supplies we need for projects in the classroom. I don't know what we would do without the help of Stuff the Bus." Margie Weatherholt, 3rd Grade, Cannelton Elementary
"The Stuff the Bus donations are always appreciated. In the middle and towards the end of the school year, many students...do not have the money for pencils, erasers, paper, crayons, to name a few items. The donations keep giving all year long." Pam Curtiss, 4th Grade, Cannelton Elementary
"I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for the school supplies our students receive from Stuff the Bus. It is definitely much needed and used. Many times our students come without needed supplies and with the help of Stuff the Bus those students do not feel ill prepared." Joan Goble, Cannelton Elementary
