Pack the Bus this weekend to help our school kids

By Josh Beavers 

Back to School is almost upon us, and that means the annual Pack the Bus event is here.  

The Pack the Bus will be this Friday, July 28 from 4 to 8 p.m. m in the parking lot of both Minden and Springhill Walmart(s).  

The event will continue Saturday 8 a.m. to noon.  Volunteers will be in the parking lot collecting supplies to “pack the bus” for our students. 

Supplies that are needed range from (but are not limited to) pens, notebooks, pencils, loose leaf paper, paper towels, kleenex, clorox wipes, highlighters, sleep mats. Cash donations will certainly be appreciated and we are still accepting sponsorships.

“We sincerely appreciate your continued support in this much needed campaign to assist our students,” said event organizer Ursula Hullaby. “Our organization has been able to provide support to thousands of students over the past fourteen years and we could not do it without YOUR help!”

Coming soon will be the 15th year for the Back to School Bash which will take place Monday, August 7th from 9am – 2pm at Webster Junior High School and the CAC building in Springhill 

The Back to School Bash will be happening for the first time in three years in person – the past two years it was drive thru due to covid – we are excited to engage our students and provide them a day of fun while receiving some of their necessary supplies.  Lots of giveaways and treats are planned for this event.

If you have any questions about how to become a sponsor or volunteer, please contact Ursula Hullaby at 318-377-7052 ext. 228.
