HIGH POINT, N.C. — In partnership with FOX8 and Thomas Built Buses, The Salvation Army will be collecting school supplies for local children in need July 27 through Aug. 4 for the “Stuff the Bus” campaign.

Donations of school supplies will be collected for local children in need at Krispy Kreme, Staples, and Walmart locations throughout the Piedmont Triad.

Beginning July 27 through Aug. 4, we will be at area Walmarts collecting school supplies from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

All of the school supplies donated through the “Stuff the Bus” campaign will go directly to local students in need, including members of The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club, and children living in The Salvation Army Center of Hope Family Shelter.

“Many children fall short of their academic potential because they lack the necessary tools to be successful,” said High Point Major Gary Sturdivant. “We are grateful to our partners and this community for helping us stuff the bus to promote education and prepare our children for their bright futures!”
