Junior Auxiliary has announced a new Covington site for the annual Stuff the Bus Project, which will be held Saturday, Aug. 2, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Applebee's in Covington and Fred’s in Munford are the new locations.
Stuff the Bus collects school supplies for children in need and last year, the project served every school in the county.
Lists for supplies are above and JA will hand out lists at each location. Auxiliary member Shannon Leach said the project is very important to the community.
“It makes such a difference for children, families, and teachers when our students can start their school year off with everything they need,” said Leach. “We are so thankful and blessed by how generous the people of Tipton County have been each year by donating school supplies for this project and we are looking forward to being able to provide even more students with supplies this year.”
This year, the two locations will be holding a friendly competition to see which one can collect the most school supplies.
Donations for the project will be accepted from those who cannot attend Aug. 2.
