An upcoming Stuff the Bus event is hoping to collect schools supplies for central Nebraskan children in low-income homes.
Yellow school buses will be located at both Grand Island Wal-Marts, Kmart and Shopko on August 1 and 2. Community groups will be taking the collected school supplies and stocking more than 300 backpacks to distribute to students in need.
Participatingagencies include the Salvation Army, Hope Harbor, Crisis Center, Head StartOutreach Center, area churches and Central Nebraska Community Services.
Those interested in volunteering can call Verna Haberman at 308.385.5900, ext. 204.
