The United Way of St Joseph is hoping you’ll lend a hand for its annual “Stuff The Bus” school supplies drive August 2 and 3. They’re looking for volunteers on Friday from 8am to 7pm, and Saturday 8am until 5:30 pm.
You’ll be working with coordinators to collect donated school supplies from the community during this year’s tax-free weekend.
School buses will be parked outside both St Joseph Walmart stores.
United Way officials say you will be asked to work shifts of one hour, 45 minutes at a time. Some volunteers will inform shoppers of the drive at the store entrances, others will collect donations at the exits. They still have more than 100 slots available.
Visit their Web site for more information. If you’re interested, contact Linda Burns, the United Way Director of Community Engagement, at (816)364-2381, or by E-mail at email@example.com.
