Stuff the Bus concludes, supplies area schools

The United Way recently ended its annual “Stuff the Bus” campaign.

The project, meant to help Logan County families who struggle with providing school supplies to their children, wrapped up at Wal-Mart over the weekend. A Bellefontaine City school bus sat in front of the store as Girl Scouts handed out a list of needed supplies. A food trailer providing free hot dogs was provided by Wal-Mart. Other snacks were available for a donation. Lutheran Community Services provided volunteers to sort the supplies.

This year between $10,000 and $11,000 worth of supplies were donated to the program, which is a record. The supplies were distributed to Bellefontaine, Benjamin Logan, Calvary Christian, Indian Lake, Ohio Hi-Point, Riverside, and West Liberty-Salem.

The supplies were delivered Monday.
