School District 51 gears up for their annual "Stuff the Bus" school supply drive
School District 51 invites you to help “Stuff the Bus” this back-to-school season.
About 44% of School District 51 students participate in the free and reduced lunch program and oftentimes don't have the means to tackle long school supply lists.
The Mesa County School District is sponsoring their annual school supply drive to give each Grand Valley student the tools they need to succeed throughout the year.
While all donations are appreciated, D51 is most in need of the bigger ticket items including heavy-duty backpacks and calculators.
“It starts to add up and so families aren't able to afford everything that might be on the back-to-school list and that's where we come in,” Jenn Hensel Hildebrandt with the D51 Foundation.
Donations are being accepted over the course of two weekends -- this Saturday and Sunday the bus will be parked in the Target parking lot at Mesa Mall from 9 A.M. to 6 P.M.
On August 1st and 2nd, you can find the bus at the Rimrock Walmart parking lot from 9 A.M. to 6 P.M.
