It’s that time of year…the 11th annual STUFF THE BUS takes place this Thursday through next Monday in the parking lot of Bluegrass Cellular! We’re very excited to take part in this great event to benefit LOCAL kids in our LOCAL schools.
This excerpt taken from a piece by WKU explains in more details what this event entails:
Since 2006, the Stuff the Bus promotion has altered the lives of children and families throughout Warren County and South Central Kentucky. Stuff the Bus is a community event that focuses on meeting the school supply needs of school-age children to ensure that every child starts the school year the same way. The goal is to give every child the same first day of school experience, regardless of background, home life, or economic status.
Each year community members come together to provide everything from basic school supplies to sports equipment and clothing to tremendous monetary donations, all used to help area children and the schools they attend. This past year, four school buses were filled to the brim with donations. This incredible success is greatly due to the efforts of radio personality Tony Rose to champion this worthwhile cause. Each year he raises major awareness for Stuff the Bus and is now inseparably tied to the heartwarming event. Like so much of the community, he understands the importance of this outpouring of compassion, which is the true definition of this event.
Stuff the Bus will be accepting donations during the days previously mentioned, just go stock up on school supplies and drop it off to the man, the myth, the legend…TONY ROSE himself! What should you purchase to donate? Anything and everything a school student might need. Glue, pencils, erasers, scissors, notebooks, composition notebooks, loose leaf paper, Kleenex, paper towels, hand sanitizer, markers, crayons…these are just to name a few!
ALSO…anyone who makes a donation of $50 or more will also receive a FREE $20 gift card to CHEETAH CLEAN AUTO WASH! That’s right, a free $20 to put toward any car wash service you choose! Regardless, please make an attempt to stop by Stuff the Bus to support this great LOCAL event! Remember, it’s located in the Bluegrass Cellular parking lot in front of Target/Wal-Mart on Campbell Lane.
