The Kiwanis Club of Hacienda Heights is trying to literally stuff a bus with school supplies to help local children get a good start this school year.
The school bus parked in front of the Industry Wal-Mart on Saturday, Aug. 13, won’t be for passengers. It’s part of the Stuff the Bus school supplies drive sponsored by the Kiwanis. The club wants to make it an annual event.
Come stuff the bus from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Wal-Mart parking lot at the corner of Azusa and Gale Avenues.
The Kiwanis Club got a generous donation of $500 from the City of Industry Manufacturers Council to help kick-off this event.
The club will be working its youth clubs, Key Clubbers and KIWIN’s from local high schools as well as Builders Clubbers in the middle schools to fill the bus with your donations.
School supplies will be donated to the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District.
Suggested supplies include: backpacks, three ring binders, loose-leaf notebook paper, spiral notebooks, pocket folders, glue sticks, pencil boxes and pencils as well as crayons, markers, rulers and scissors.
Consider stopping by to purchase your school supplies and buy a few extra to donate to the school district. For more information, call Dave Wallach at 626-333-8426 or 714-328-2410.
