LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - School is almost around the corner and school supplies are in great demand.
The Salvation Army alongside Walmart is hosting "Stuff the Bus". Students throughout Greater Lafayette are supplied with pens, paper and a variety of necessary school supplies students need to fulfill their education.
Salvation Army Lieutenant Aaron Johnson says he's excited to give out the supplies throughout the year.
"You still have kids all year-round that run out of school supplies and Mom and Dad can't afford to buy it all. We're going to have loads of school supplies left and we'll just kind of be stocking up the schools all year," stated Johnson.
"Stuff the Bus" will kick off Saturday, August 3rd from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Walmart on 4205 Commerce drive and on 2801 Northwestern Avenue.
Johnson says when you arrive at one of the participating Walmart’s you will be given a list of supplies that students need throughout the area, and after you buy the supplies you can drop them off at a Salvation Army bus that will be at both Walmart’s.
"All of the stuff people donate tomorrow will just help continue giving school supplies to the elementary, the middle schools, and the high schools all year," added Johnson.
