For a number of years, Prevent Child Abuse Bulloch County has conducted the annual back-to-school supply drive, Stuff the Bus.
Stuff the Bus allows citizens the opportunity to provide school supplies for children in need in the Bulloch County school system.
This year, Prevent Child Abuse Bulloch County is partnering with United Way of Southeast Georgia and Wal-Mart for Fill the Bus 2014. Fill the Bus is a nationwide campaign that promotes customers buying school supplies for children in need in their community.
On Saturday, a school bus will be parked at Wal-Mart to allow people to "fill the bus" with donated school supplies from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. School supplies can also be donated at Wal-Mart in Fill the Bus bins located at the main and grocery entrances through Sunday. Items can also be dropped off at the United Way office on Denmark Street. Once school supplies are collected, they will be given to the Bulloch County Board of Education to distribute to children in need. All school supplies are needed.
