Stuff the bus! for kids

Our Pencil Box Club donated $85 to the 2011-12 LESA Backpacks for Kids project today. Thanks to our members for helping to make that first day of school a happy day for Livingston County kids. We encourage everyone to donate to this wonderful project that distributes free back-to-school supplies to Livingston County students grades K-12. You can Stuff the Bus from 10-2 p.m. on August 5 at the Fowlerville Walmart, and 10-2 p.m. August 13 at the Howell Walmart or drop off your donations at Livingston Educational Service Agency, 1425 West Grand River, Howell, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The distribution date for free back-to-school supplies will be from 6-8 p.m. August 18 at LESA. Program coordinator Robin Schutz tells all about it here:

We are pleased to announce TWO locations and TWO days of Stuff the Bus for the Tenth Annual “Fill Backpacks for Kids” Campaign at Livingston Educational Service Agency

An LESA Bus will be in the Fowlerville Wal-Mart Parking Lot on Friday, August 52011, and in the Howell Wal-Mart Parking Lot on Friday, August 13, 2011.  You can Stuff the Bus at either location from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Families, who are shopping for school supplies can pick up an extra set of pencils, pack of paper, or even a backpack as a contribution to the Tenth Annual “Fill Backpacks for Kids” Campaign.

Last year, over $6,000 in monetary donations and supplies helped us distribute over 1,800 backpacks to students from Preschool through 12th Grade. The goal this year is to distribute 2,000 backpacks full of basic school supplies for Livingston County students whose families may be experiencing financial difficulties.  Residents, churches and local businesses contribute to this effort through donations, volunteer time, and serving as drop-off sites for supplies and backpacks to make it a success.

Donations for LESA’s 2011 Backpack for Kids Campaign can be dropped off at the Livingston Educational Service Agency, 1425 West Grand River, Howell, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Date of distribution is August 18, 2011, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the LESA Education Center.
