Even though school doesn't start for another week for Chatham County schools, you'll see a couple of school buses making pickups. The annual Stuff the Bus campaign hopes to pick up supplies for less fortunate families. One bus at the Ogeechee Road Wal-Mart and another one at Montgomery Cross Road will take donations all this week.
Hopefully by Sunday, the 14th, your contributions will help stuff the buses full of supplies for children in need.
"It's very useful for those children and parents that may have a struggle getting school supplies or not able to get it right now when school opens up," said Maggie Kirklend with Laidlaw, the company which runs the buses in Chatham County. "Sometimes it happens that they have to wait a while. This will help."
WTOC is proud to sponsor this event with the Savannah-Chatham Board of Education, who will handle the distribution of the donations to needy children in our area.
