United Way hosts Paducah-McCracken Co “Stuff the Bus”
Have you gone back to school shopping yet? Some families in our community can’t afford all the supplies. That’s why the United Way of Paducah-McCracken county holds "Stuff the Bus" every year.
Many of you came out to donate notebooks, glue, and other school supplies for area kids. The event collects school supply donations and delivers them to eighteen different schools. Betsy Burkeen explains says it’s an important yearly event.
She says, "If you are already struggling to make the bills and then you have that extra expense that comes along and maybe you have three or four kids, that could potentially be three or four hundred dollars to get those kids back in school. so any little bit we can do."
Along with donating school supplies – they received $699.83 today.
Last year stuff the bus helped 646 families get the supplies they needed for their children.
