Stuff A Bus With School Supplies

Stuff A Bus For Washoe County Students!


It is Back to School time again here in Northern Nevada and a group of Washoe County parents, teachers and faculty are trying to raise money and school supplies for "Children In Transition".

Children in Transition are  Washoe County students who are homeless and do not have a permanent residence.

Last year over 2,000 students were in transition and could not afford school supplies, lunch money and clothes.

The school supplies needed for this fundraiser are:

Binders, paper, backpacks, rulers, pencils, erasers, compasses, folders, gift cards, markers, folders, and just about anything else you can think of that is used in the classroom.

The bus that is being stuffed is at the Wal Mart Super Center located at 4855 Kietze Lane, Reno, NV.

You can drop your donations off anytime today, August 15, 2008. But hurry, the bus is leaving Wal Mart at 7p.m. tonight.

 For more information on the Washoe County  School District or for more information on how you can help the Children In Transition, please visit the website at www.washoe.k12.nvusor feel free to contact me, Terrie Leighton, at 775-846-5424 for more information on the schools in Northern Nevada and this fundraiser.

I just love back to school time!  It's always a blessing to help those less fortunate get ready for school too!

Bye for now,

Yvette- I love back to school as well. I remember when I was in school how fun it was to shop for school supplies. I had to have the perfect binder! And now my 11 year old daughter is the same way. It is all about the cool binder.

Hey Terrie, I hope the bus pulled out FULL! It's really ashame that children get caught in these situations; 2,000 is too many, and that is only in one area. Our small area is always doing various drives to help people too. We have one Methodist church that really does their share in helping. They just had their food bank last week. They also do back pack foods. Where children get food to take home each week. Our community also has Christian Ministries (ran pretty much by Methodist churches) it works a lot like Goodwill. Good things happening...

Thanks Teresa - I believe most communities try to support the homeless and school aged children in transition in one form or another. I thought the Stuff a Bus was a great idea and an easy way to contribute. Most of us parents do our back to school shopping at Wal Mart so that store is a great place to part the bus. It is great to hear about your area getting involved with the food bank and different fund raisers. Thanks for stopping by.
