STUFF THE BUS: United Way School Supply Drive

There are many Cullman County school children (and families) in need of school supplies for the coming fall semester.

The United Way of Cullman County is partnering with Cullman County Schools to distribute supplies to those students who may not be able to afford what the need.

The United Way is requesting individuals, families, community groups, businesses, churches, and any other interested parties to pitch in and help out students across the county. You can drop off your donations, and help the United Way reach their goal of EVERY student having school supplies this year.

Monetary support and donations are great. Also needed are:

• #2 Pencils
• Crayons
• Erasers
• Glue Sticks
• Zipper Pencil Case
• Safety Scissors
• Composition Notebooks
• Ruler
• Wide-ruled & College-ruled notebook paper
• Folders with pockets
• Washable Markers
• Hand Sanitizer
• 1” & 2” 3-ring binder
• Colored Pencils
• Pens: red, blue and black ink
• Index Cards
• Graph paper

The United Way’s participating sponsors/businesses are Rusken Packaging, American Proteins, UPS, Warren Averett and Cullman Today.

This “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive event begins on Monday, July 30, and Friday, August 3rd.

The bus itself will be located near the Cullman County Courthouse for collections.

Many United Way board members have volunteered their companies to be additional collection locations and will coordinate a drive in their businesses. Those locations are as follows (other sites may be added):

★ United Way
★ Rusken Packaging
★ American Proteins

Help the United Way of Cullman County “Stuff the Bus” with much-needed school supplies for Cullman children and families in need.
