Stuff the Bus for Levy schools Aug. 2

-A A +A

 Several years ago the Levy County Schools Foundation began the program, “Stuff the Bus” to benefit our county’s public schools, teachers, staff and students by collecting a variety of school supplies to be distributed to each school.    

The kick-off this year is Saturday, Aug. 2, which coincides with Florida’s Tax Free Days, Aug. 1-3. 

This is the day a Levy County School Bus will be parked in each community so school supplies can be donated while families are shopping for their children. 

School supplies may be dropped off at the big yellow buses parked at Dollar General Market in Bronson, Dollar General in Cedar Key, Walmart in Chiefland, Walgreen’s in Williston and The Food Ranch in Inglis from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Donations may also be taken directly to any of the schools, the Levy County School Board District Office in Bronson or the Levy County Schools Foundation office at 4 W. Park Ave. in Chiefland. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to make a direct and immediate impact in our local classrooms. 

The following is a list of suggested items for donation:  

Backpacks, pens, pencils, erasers, colored pencils, paper, pocket folders, binders, spiral notebooks, composition books-all sizes, crayons,  markers-permanent and washable, dry erase and high-lighters, calculators, rulers, index cards, post-it notes, scissors,  washable glue, glue sticks, kleenex,  hand soap, hand sanitizer  and disinfectant wipes.  

There is also always a need for socks, underwear and personal hygiene items.  

Monetary donations will be used to purchase bulk supplies and may be mailed to Levy County Schools Foundation, P.O. Box 1386, Bronson, FL 32621.  Contributions are tax deductible.   

All items are given to the schools. The Levy County Schools Foundation does not provide supplies to individual students or families. Specific needs may be addressed through each school‘s administrators, guidance counselors or social workers.
