Stuff The Bus! Collecting School Supplies for County Students
Let’s "Stuff the Bus!" United Way of Aroostook is partnering with Aroostook County Action Program, Adopt-A-Block Aroostook, Townsquare Media & Walmart in Houlton and Presque Isle to collect school supplies for students at over 20 county schools.
The bus will be at the Houlton Walmart Thursday, July 18th from 3-6 p.m. and at the Presque Isle Walmart on Friday, July 19th from 3-6. Townsquare Media is broadcasting LIVE both days.
You can purchase backpacks, notebooks, pencils/pens, crayons/markers, erasers, scissors and other school supplies.
Stuff the Bus sponsor, North Country Auto, is doing a "hit-and-win" style of matching. When we reach 500 backpacks, North Country Auto will donate an additional $500. If we hit the goal of 1,000 backpacks, they will donate $1,000.
You can also help by dropping off new supplies at the bins in Walmart and the United Way office at the Aroostook Center Mall. For more information, or to see if your child qualifies for this program, contact ACAP at 764-3721 or United Way of Aroostook at 764-5197.
