Volunteers gathered Friday for the Stuff the Bus Bash. The United Way of South Central Illinois program provides school supplies to students throughout Jefferson County from donations provided by the community. Items and cash donations used to purchase school supplies will continue to be accepted. Cash donations of $15 will purchase a backpack, while cash donations of $30 will provide back-to-school supplies to fill the backpack. Additional information is available by contacting the United Way at 242-8000. Volunteers will also be needed to sort donated items and fill backpacks in August.
