STUFF THE BUS - ANOTHER GREAT SUCCESS STORY

On July 25th & 26th United Way of the Ohio Valley joined forces with the Ohio County Board of Education, Ohio County Hospital, Perdue Farms, and Walmart to launch the Fourth Annual ‘Stuff The Bus’ event.  More than Dozens of employees and other community volunteers came together and offered an opportunity for shoppers to help ‘Stuff The Bus’ with school supplies. 

As shoppers arrived, each was offered a list of school supplies and invited to purchase a few items.  ‘This year we had 41 volunteers who donated 169 hours during this event.’ said Janice Tomblinson, United Way of the Ohio Valley board member.     

‘Four years ago this idea was presented to Walmart and the partnership quickly grew to include more partners.’ said Rachel Dever who served as the main Walmart representative for this event.  ‘This is such a giving community.’ said Kelly Roe, another United Way of the Ohio Valley board member, ‘some people gave school supplies while others donated cash.’  Cash donations were use to purchase additional school supplies and clothing for students.  A total of 2,916 schools items were donated.  Cash and school items combined amounted to $5,954.  ‘People have just been wonderful!’ said Kara Bullock, Ohio County Assistant Superintendent. 

Many thanks go out to Walmart, Ohio County Board of Education, Ohio County Hospital, Perdue Farms, United Way of the Ohio Valley, and the entire community for making ‘Stuff The Bus’ such a success.  This is another example of how a community can partner to LIVE UNITED for our children!  

All Ohio County donations will be administered through the Ohio County Family Resource Centers to assist children in our community who might need some help getting ready for back-to-school.
