Lapeer, MI. It’s the middle of summer, but it won’t be long before kids start heading back to school. The United Way of Lapeer County and Walmart want to make sure students have the things they need to succeed. Starting today through August 12th 2016 there will be bins located in your Lapeer Walmart to Stuff the Bus for Lapeer County Students. Some of the items needed include: Pens, crayons, pencils, rulers, erasers, scissors, lined paper, colored pencils, spiral notebooks, folders, glue sticks, markers, pencil boxes, hand sanitizer, tissues, backpacks and flash drives.
What is Stuff the Bus?
Stuff the Bus eases the financial burden on families with school-aged children who are homeless or nearly homeless. Giving a student who is homeless a backpack with all the required supplies promotes learning, encourages self-esteem and helps kids stay in school. Its more than a backpack, it’s the first step to prepare students for a lifetime of learning.
