Fill the Bus 2018
July 27 - July 28
Many children look forward to arriving on the first day of school with new notebooks, backpacks and pencil boxes, but it’s a different story for children whose families can’t afford these items. On July 27th and 28th, United Way of Fort Smith Area asks individuals to help them fill a bus full of supplies to be donated to children in need in our six-county service area.
Not only do the donated supplies help children with their studies, having a new backpack or notebook can really help raise a child’s self-esteem. Feeling good about themselves and having the tools they need to complete their school work helps children get off on the right foot as they start a new school year.
If you would like to volunteer or if you want to put out a box so your customers or employees can donate at your business, call our office at 479-782-1311 or fill out the form below to send us an e-mail.
