The "Stuff the Bus" event will collect supplies from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 5 to 9 in the parking lot of the Target at 3749 Carpenter Road in Pittsfield Township.
All supplies collected that week will be placed in a full-sized school bus at the location.
In 2012, the event collected $10,000 worth of school supplies for students in Washtenaw County.
Suggested items for donation include:
- Three-ring binders
- Composition books
- Colored pencils
- Mechanical pencils
- Pencil sharpeners
- Index cards
- Display boards
Supplies collected go to students in public schools in the Washtenaw Intermediate School District.
Schools in the district communicate to the coordinators of the Stuff the Bus event the number of children in need of supplies.
The event kicks off the county employee's 2013 United Way Campaign.
