Why: The 7th Annual Stuff the Bus for Teachers is a fun, family friendly event that unites the Pasco community in an effort to gather school supplies for teachers.

How: Those interested in participating in this event can donate school supplies at their local Walmart donation site. Volunteers at these sites will provide shopping supply lists, collect donated school supplies, stuff them in the bus, and then sort them. The donations will be collected outdoors, so volunteers are encouraged to wear cool clothing, sun screen, and a hat. Water bottles will be provided on the bus, but volunteers may wish to bring a cooler with cold drinks. Minors who wish to volunteer must be accompanied by an adult who is at least 18 years old. All volunteers will receive a free Stuff the Bus T-shirt. For more information, call (727) 835-2028.
