Thanks to your help, struggling families can breathe a sigh of relief.
Officials at the United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk tell myFM that they are blown away by the public’s support for their 1st ever “Stuff the Bus” initiative.
The “Stuff the Bus” program provides backpacks, school supplies, and other items to prepare low-income students for the first day of school.
The United Way is looking for things like pens, pencils, erasers, and calculators.
The program wraps up this weekend.
We will post more information including the drop off locations.
Everything donated will stay local.
Items can be dropped off at the SuperStore in Simcoe.
