Stuff a Bus collecting propagandize reserve for Chattahoochee Valley girl – Columbus Ledger
June 17, 2016 - School Supplies
Scott Ferguson says it is tough to trust though many children in this village start propagandize but a simple supplies.
And it puts them during a disadvantage.
“Other children make fun of them,” pronounced Ferguson, a boss and CEO of United Way of a Chattahoochee Valley.
On Thursday, outward a domicile on Fifth Avenue in Columbus, United Way kicked off a third annual Stuff a Bus debate to collect propagandize reserve for children in need.
Ferguson pronounced a lofty idea is 4,000 backpacks filled with required equipment that will be distributed in early Aug to students during 33 Title 1 schools in Columbus, Phenix City, Russell County and Harris County.
The initial year of a debate saw 900 backpacks filled and final year 2,277.
Additional reserve were also perceived and distributed.
Ferguson pronounced a debate relies on internal companies and a ubiquitous public. It is off to a good start with Snyder’s Lance already providing 1,600 backpacks.
“That is phenomenal,” Ferguson said. “Now we’re seeking others to step up.”
A cosmetic trek filled with equipment such pencils, notebooks and erasers can be appreciated by children.
All kind of reserve will be supposed and distributed to a youth.
United Way is looking for index cards, glue sticks, crayons, markers, pencils, combination notebooks and three-ring binders.
Bright yellow tubs will be found in 29 opposite locations around city including a Columbus Chamber of Commerce on Sixth Avenue, United Way of a Chattahoochee Valley, Central Activities Center on 14th Street in Phenix City, a Phenix City Fire Department on Airport Road, a North Columbus Public Library on Armour Road and PMB Broadcasting on Wynnton Road in Columbus.
There will be a communitywide collection day during a Columbus Public Library on Macon Road Jul 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“Of course, people can only present dollars,” Ferguson said.
People can unite a pressed trek for $25.
Checks can be sent by mail to United Way of a Chattahoochee Valley, P.O. Box 1157, Columbus, GA 31902 with checks done out to United Way of a Chattahoochee Valley, with “Stuff a Bus” in a memo.
