Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive

With "back-to-school" season almost upon us, we hope you might help us "Stuff the Bus" with school supplies for area classrooms.  United Way's annual school supply drive is underway throughout Logan County with a goal of filling an actual school bus with donations collected at dozens of participating area businesses. Stuff the Bus continues through Monday August 5.  
 
"Stuff the Bus supplies are like Christmas gifts," said Valarie Rapp, Guidance Counselor at Indian Lake Schools.
  
That's because items collected during the project are sorted and delivered directly to area schools for use in the classroom throughout the upcoming school year.
Your workplace can serve as a collection site this summer.  Here’s how!
 
BY MONDAY JULY 22
Contact United Way at (937) 592-2886 or dave@uwlogan.org and let us know that you wish to have your associates/customers collect items this year.  We’ll advertise your location as a collection site in local media, social media, and on our website.  We’ll provide you with some signs and materials to promote the collection, including the list of suggested school supplies to be collecting.
 
MONDAY JULY 22 THROUGH MONDAY AUGUST 5
You promote the Stuff the Bus collection internally to your associates and customers and collect as much as you can.
