-A A +A

PERRY COUNTY – United Way of Perry County will sponsor the fifth Stuff the Bus school-supply drive Friday and Saturday for area students in need. United Way, Wal-Mart and area volunteers will once again join together to solicit donations.
The hope is to increase donations this year due to the continued need in the community, organizers said. United Way will be “Stuffing the Bus” Friday and Saturday at the Tell City Wal-Mart.
Volunteers are needed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. both days to help the public “stuff” the school bus of their choice. All supplies will be distributed to children in need by the local school contacts.
Local businesses are encouraged to have their own Stuff the Bus collections. Volunteers will pick up donations prior to July 29.
