Walmart and The Salvation Army are joining forces to provide new school supplies to local children in need during the “Stuff the Bus” campaign event at the Wadsworth Walmart, 222 Smokerise Drive, on Saturday, Aug. 3 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
As part of a nationwide effort, the “Stuff the Bus” campaign event in Wadsworth is one of nearly 3,000 similar events taking place at Walmart stores across the country. In-store shoppers on August 3 will receive lists of supplies needed, and all they have to do to participate is purchase and drop off the requested items at The Salvation Army collection bins located at the front of the store.
Major Steven Stoops, Area Coordinator for The Salvation Army says, “By donating school supplies for a child in need, you’re easing the burden parents experience at the start of the school year, and helping set the right tone for these kids as they head back to school. It’s the boost of confidence they need to have a successful year.”
Look for the green bus in the parking lot to donate school supplies to the cause.
