United Way Stuff the Bus drive begins tomorrow


united-way-of-greater-augusta2Tomorrow starts the ninth annual United Way of Greater Augusta “Stuff the Bus” at the Staunton and Waynesboro Wal-Marts during tax free weekend – August 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.  Volunteers will be collecting supplies from 8:30 am-8 pm Friday and Saturday and Sunday from 8:30 am-6pm.

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.
