CLINTON, Ind. (WTHI) - Your help is needed to supply the right tools for students to succeed.
In its fourth year, United Way of the Wabash Valley encourages folks to donate to the Stuff the Bus school supply drive.
School supply donations are accepted and stuffed into a school bus and then donated to children across six counties in the Wabash Valley.
It's all in an effort to supply children the right tools to succeed in the classroom.
"Some of the families here in our community, that's the only way their children are going to get school supplies and it's been very appreciative," Robin Summerville with the United Way said. "The parents that have been given the supplies in the past are giving back now if they can afford it. So, it's been great."
If you couldn't donate today, you have several more chances.
