united-way-of-greater-augustaThe United Way of Greater Augusta will be holding its annual “Stuff the Bus” at the Staunton and Waynesboro Wal-Marts during tax free weekend – August 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

The United Way of Greater Augusta has partnered with Wal-Mart to present Stuff the Bus.  Throughout the weekend, August 1-3, volunteers will be collecting donated school supplies and backpacks for students in Waynesboro, Staunton and Augusta County schools.

You will find a list of basic school supplies needed by our area children. Donations can be dropped off all weekend long August 1-3 at the Staunton or Waynesboro Wal-Marts.  In addition to donations, United Way of Greater Augusta is in need of volunteers to help us collect, pack and deliver school supplies.  Please visit the Greater Augusta Volunteer Center website at www.volunteergreateraugusta.org for opportunities to volunteer for Stuff the Bus.

If you would like to donate school supplies prior to August 1st you can drop off supplies at the United Way of Greater Augusta office located at 24 Idlewood Blvd, Staunton, Virginia between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through up until July 31st.
