From the New Haven Unified School District:
The local community can help provide supplies for New Haven students this weekend when Walmart once again hosts a “Stuff the Bus” event at the Union Landing shopping center.
A District bus will be parked outside the Union Landing from Friday (Aug. 17) through Sunday (Aug. 19), and shoppers will be invited to purchase items from a list of school supplies and “stuff the bus” with donations for students. Since the annual event began in 2010, shoppers have donated hundreds of reams of paper, thousands of pencils, pens and crayons, and hundreds of binders and folders.
Parents, school employees and other community volunteers will greet shoppers and accept donations from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, but donation bins will be available 24 hours a day.
Two other Union Landing businesses – and – also are collecting school supplies for New Haven students. As an added incentive, Texas Roadhouse customers who donate three or more items will receive a free appetizer card for their next visit.
