Fill the Bus Preparations

Posted: Updated:

An annual event that gathers school supplies for kids who need them to start the year off needs even more donations this year.

Tomorrow, the 'Fill the Bus' drive is on at Town and Country Credit Union.

Today, some early donations were being sorted...but members of Minot's Sunrise Rotary who sponsor the event hope there is a big response from the community on Wednesday.

That's when the bulk of the school supplies come in.

Megan Laudenschlager says the goal is to supply even more kids with the tools they need to start the school year off right.

 (Megan Laudenschlager - Sunrise Rotary) "This year we are working directly with area schools as well as with the Salvation Army so we will still be doing our baseline of about 120 kids but we also have about 100 teachers who have signed up saying they need supplies as well." 

The bus to be filled will be parked at Town and Country Credit Union tomorrow from 10 until 6.

Laudenschlager says donations will be accepted throughout the week however at the credit union, even after the bus itself is gone.
