‘Fill the Bus’ Supply Drive
United Way of South Mississippi is in the middle of a big campaign to make sure students are prepared for school.
The ‘Fill the Bus’ School Supply Drive has been underway since July 8th and is featured at seven Walmart Supercenter locations across Pearl River, Hancock, Harrison, and Stone counties.
Shoppers can purchase school supplies and donate them at boxes near the store entrances.
The supplies are then sent to local school districts to ensure that every child has what they need to succeed. Kellee Caldwell with the United Way of South Mississippi said, “It does make a big difference for those families who just can’t quite make the splurge to get those supplies.”
The drive ends on July 31st so there is still time left to donate.
