Stuff the Bus - MSNewsNow.com - Jackson, MS


WLBT and the United Way of Jackson are partnering together with Office Depot, Raising Cane’s and other local businesses in an effort to collect school supplies and donations to benefit families in need. Items may be dropped off at participating vendor locations beginning 7/11, then on Wednesday 7/25, 5:30a.m.–6:00p.m., the public is invited to stuff the big, yellow school bus parked in front of Office Depot on I-55 North Frontage Road. Some of the items needed are notebook paper, pencils and pens, scissors, glue sticks, calculators, hand sanitizers, book bags and much more! A complete list of participating vendors and the official school supply list is listed below.
