Grand Junction, CO The annual Stuff the Bus school supply donation drive begins today, Monday, July 8, 2019! Anyone with new school supplies to donate to local children can drop them off at the white activity bus parked in the middle of Mesa Mall before the drive ends on Monday, Aug. 5, 2019. All donated supplies will be distributed to local schools that will get the supplies to the families who need them most.

Nearly half (49%) of all District 51 students live in households that meet federal income requirements for free or reduced-price school meals. For many of these families, Back to School shopping can be a daunting task. Parents who are in need of supplies can request them by talking to the office staff at their child’s school. What will be given out depends on the amount and type of supplies that are donated.

Here’s a list of the most in-demand items:

  • #2 Pencils
  • Colored Pencils
  • Markers
  • Crayons
  • Notebooks
  • Notebook Paper
  • Graph Paper
  • Glue Sticks
  • Scissors
  • Rulers
  • Pocket Folders
  • 3 Ring Binders
  • Erasers
