FILL THE BUS GOES VIRTUAL!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are offering a no –contact option for making donations to Fill the Bus! Walmart indefinitely suspended allowing volunteers of any kind on their property due to the increased risk of the COVID-19 spread so we were unable to collect school supplies this year.
We know that with these times of change that students need school supplies more than ever so I ask that you share the attached Fill the Bus flyer with staff, friends, local businesses, and social media. Please spread the word that donors can designate their donations to your school district. 100% of designated donations goes directly to your school. The virtual school supply drive will be going now until August 10 to allow us time to distribute supplies to schools before the first day of school.
There are three ways to donate:
Donate by texting “schoolbus” to 41444
