Stuff the Bus ready to distribute supplies
Volunteers were at the Bluffs Business Center Tuesday morning sorting school supplies gathered during the two week Stuff The Bus campaign organized by the United Way of Western Nebraska and Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska.
United Way Executive Director Steph Black says there was an amazing response from the community and the items gathered will be delivered to the area's school districts Wednesday.
Black says CAPWN and the school districts identify through income guidelines the needy children who will get the supplies, which include spiral notebooks, pens, pencils, rulers, calculators, and basically everything a student would need prior to the beginning of the school year.
In addition to what was sorted today, Game Time donated 1,000 "Ugio" collector notebooks that will also be distributed to area classrooms.
