With children returning to the classroom after the pandemic, school supplies will be critical to helping them prepare and succeed. The Salvation Army of Broward County is partnering with Walmart, once again, to “Stuff the Bus” with school supplies to help underserved children in Broward County. The drive will take place from Friday, August 6, through Sunday, August 8, and will offer generous supporters several ways to donate – via Walmart’s online registry, through the organization’s secure donation portal and via drop-offs. All supplies will be distributed to school-aged children in need in Broward County just in time for the start of the new school year on Wednesday, August 18.
The Salvation Army of Broward County is currently seeking a variety of supplies including pencils, pens, calculators, paper, folders, spiral notebooks, binders, colored markers, glue sticks and more.
