The United Way of Fayette County “Stuff the Bus” campaign began this week and locals will have the chance until Aug. 8 to help collect school supplies for kids who need them most.
“Where does time go?” United Way of Fayette County asks. “The County fair is over and the summer has flown by and now it is time to think about back to school. Do you remember the first day of school? New pencils, new crayons, new folders and a new start! Unfortunately, not all Fayette County children have that same feeling, most struggle to get those items on that school supply list. You can change that! You can make a difference!”
According to United Way of Fayette County, anyone may drop off donated supplies in various collection bins throughout the county. Donations will be distributed to Washington Court House City Schools, Miami Trace Local Schools, Head Start and Starting Gate.
Collection bins can be found at the following locations:
Carnegie Library, Chamber of Commerce, Court House Manor, Fifth Third Bank, Boutique on Main, First State Bank, the Elks Lodge #0129, Edward Jones, Adena Fayette Medical Center, Fayette County Administration Building on the third floor and basement, Fraternal Order of Eagles, Merchants National Bank, Nutrien Ag Solutions, St. Catherine’s, Sugar Creek Packing, Platform Coffee, Valero Renewable Fuels, Red Collar Pet Food, YUSA, and Walmart.
United Way President Debbie Bryant said to look for the bus at Walmart in Washington C.H. and drop supplies there. She also encourages those interested to shop online at Walmart Registry for Good with all purchased supplies to be shipped directly to the United Way of Fayette County.
