Stuff The Bus With School Supplies

Aug 3, 2015

 From now until August 7th United Way of Washtenaw County needs your help to collect schools supplies for their "Stuff the Bus" campaign.  

You can drop-off pencils, backpacks and other supplies at a yellow school bus that has been parked outside the Target store on Carpenter Street in Ypsilanti.

Shauntai Davis, who is working with the campaign says students from the Washtenaw County Public Schools Districts need the supplies and could be affected academically without them.

Shauntai Davis tells WEMU what supplies are needed:

 pencils, pens, backpacks, three-ring binders, composition books, erasers, mechanical pencils, colored pencils, pencil sharpeners, crayons, folders, highlighters, index cards, calculators, display boards, protractors, and rulers.
