‘Stuff the Bus’ July 10-Aug. 7

Grand Junction, CO – The annual Stuff the Bus school supply drive starts this Monday, July 10, 2017, at Mesa Mall! Anyone who wants to donate school supplies for local children can drop them off at the white activity bus parked in the middle of the mall by Starbucks. Donations can be dropped off during regular mall hours July 10 through Aug. 7.

More than half of all District 51 students live in households that meet federal income requirements for free or reduced-price school meals. Back to School shopping can be a daunting task for a lot of these families, and any support the community can provide is greatly appreciated. All donated supplies will be distributed to local schools that will get the supplies to the families who need them most.
