The event will culminate on a “Day of Action” book-sorting event June 21 at the Jessie Ball duPont Center.
Stuff the Bus begins July 1 and lasts until Aug. 1. School supply donations will benefit United Way’s Full Service Schools and Achievers For Life initiatives. Registration for companies interested in hosting school-supply collection drives at their offices opens June 22. First Coast News will also host a community-wide school supply drop-off day July 29, time and location to be announced. Stuff the Bus will culminate on a “Day of Action” school-supply sorting event Aug. 1 at the Jessie Ball duPont Center.
