BEAVER - Community members helped fill another bus with school supplies for low-income students as part of Concord University's Stuff the Bus campaign.
Each seat on the bus had around three bags of materials at Saturday's collection event. Pam Wallace, student and administrative assistant at Concord University, said the supplies will help local public school students succeed in school. "If its a pack of pens, if its a pack of pencils, that is a big difference to somebody," she explained. "So this is our way of saying: you know what, we can do something to change the way things are going."
The Stuff the Bus wrap-up event will be held Tuesday, August 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Erma Byrd Center at 300 University Drive in Beaver. For more information, call 304-256-0270, extension 207.
