The Todd County School System is hoping supporters will help the district fill a bus with school supplies before the new year begins and there’s a couple events next week to make it happen.
Previously known as Load the Limo, Fill the Bus is an expansion of that effort. Todd County Community Education Director Katrena Smith says they’ll have a school bus to load with supplies next to the Todd County Career Path Institute on South Main Street in Elkton from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 10th and from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 14th.
Those donated items will be distributed to the family resource centers in Todd County Schools and any student in need can receive the supplies on the first day of school.
Suggested items to donate include three-ring binders, colored pencils, crayons, ear buds, flash drives, index cards, pencils, spiral notebooks, paper and hand sanitizer.
Anyone with questions or wanting to help can call Smith at 270-265-3436.
