Bemidji United Way & Paul Bunyan Broadcasting Host School Supply Drive ‘Stuff A Bus’
Bemidji school officials say hundreds of kids in the district are in need of school supplies for the upcoming school year. That’s where the United Way of Bemidji and Paul Bunyan Broadcasting’s “Stuff A Bus” school supply drive came in.
Through Aug. 27, school supply donations were collected at various locations over the past couple weeks with the goal to stuff a bus full of them. The United Way of Bemidji Area delivered those supplies to the school district Monday afternoon.
“Huge shout out to our community and thank you from Bemidji Area Schools. Thanks to United Way, and all the volunteers and everyone that supported this Stuff A Bus,” says Lindsey Olding, a social worker with the Bemidji School District. “The kids are going to be so excited to get these supplies during their orientations this week at their schools.”
Back-to-school orientation started Monday and runs through Sept. 1. Families in need of school supplies should contact Lindsey Olding at 218-368-1059.
