FLINT TWP. — The yellow school bus in the parking lot of Applebee’s restaurant on Miller Road last Friday rolled in to help kick off the 8th annual Stuff the Bus with School Stuff, spearheaded by the Salvation Army which manages the distribution to families who are struggling financially.

The bus on loan for the day from the Genesee Intermediate School District also served as a visual reminder to buy extra back-to-school supplies to help those less fortunate.

The public is asked to drop-off donations now through Aug. 16 at numer- ous sites countywide (see attached list).

More than 2,926 book bags “stuffed” with school supplies have been distributed to area children throughout Genesee County in the past seven years thanks to the community’s giving spirit, according to Connie Peters, development director for the Salvation Army.

Needed supplies include:
Backpack/Book Bags
Spiral Notebooks
Markers/Highlighters
Crayons/Colored Pencils
Pencil Pouches/Boxes
#2 Pencils
Boxes of Tissues (Kleenex)
