SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR ‘STUFF THE BUS’

The Cabot Walmart Supercenter and Hope’s Closet and Pantry are teaming up to “Stuff the Bus” with school supplies from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8 to support students in the Cabot School District.

Hope’s Closet director Kim Buchberger said, “All supplies donated will supplement schools in the district. We’ll take everything the kids need to have a good school day.”

She said the supplies collected from the Stuff the Bus event will be used as a buffer for teachers buying supplies with their own money. Items needed include pencils, paper, hand sanitizer, tissue, notebooks, binders and glue.

“We definitely need community support,” she said.
