Over 28,000 items donated at Stuff the Bus

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Volunteers loaded up school supplies Saturday to Stuff the Bus at local Walmart stores.

This is the tenth year volunteers collected school supplies for Region 8 students who are in need.

Misty Doyle is the principal at Microsociety Magnet School and said this is a way to make sure all students start the year off right. “They come in and they don't feel embarrassed to not have the supplies and they feel successful already,” said Doyle.

Doyle said they are always in need of paper, pencils, crayons and hand sanitizer.

In all, 28,547 items and $2039.03 were donated to help stuff the bus.
