Kiwanis Clubs to launch 10th annual Stuff the Bus supply drive


August 2, 2018 | View PDF

Kiwanis Clubs of Pullman and Moscow will collect needed school supplies for local children in the 10th annual Stuff the Bus drive Aug. 9, 10 and 11. Hundreds of families on the Palouse find it difficult to afford the supplies their children need, and the Kiwanis Clubs ask for everyone’s support and donations.

Over the last decade, Stuff the Bus in collaboration with Kiwanis Pullman, Colfax, Colton/Uniontown and Moscow schools has helped thousands of kids get backpacks, notebooks, and other crucial school supplies. The project now has the potential to assist almost 1,900 eligible students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch programs. Students receive the supplies through their schools.

Yellow school buses will be parked at Dissmore’s IGA in Pullman and at Staples in Moscow. Those buses will be open for donations:

Thursday, Aug. 9, 2-5 p.m.;

Friday, Aug. 10, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.;

Saturday, Aug. 11, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

In Colfax, a bus will be at Rosauers Aug. 10, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.,

and Aug. 11, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

A bus in Colton will be available for donations Aug. 11, from 9 a.m.-.noon.

Locations for donation boxes for the Stuff the Bus drive all week, Aug. 6 to Aug. 11, include Neill Public Library, Washington State Employees’ Credit Union on Bishop Blvd., Coug Housing, Regency of Pullman, Colton Post Office, Uniontown Post Office, Colton Day Care and Whitman Hospital and Medical Center in Colfax.

Pullman Kiwanis will also gather gently used musical instruments for Pullman school bands. They can be dropped off at the bus next to Dissmore’s IGA.

Official kickoff for Stuff the Bus will be at the Kiwanis Club of Pullman’s meeting on Thursday, Aug. 9, at noon, at Banyans on the Ridge Pavilion in Pullman.
