CONCORD UNIVERSITY’S STUFF THE BUS

DONATES SCHOOL SUPPLIES TO RALEIGH COUNTY CHILDREN

 

 ATHENS, W.Va. – School children in Raleigh County, West Virginia are benefitting from the community’s generous support of Concord University’s Stuff the Bus campaign. Coordinated by Concord’s Beckley campus, Stuff the Bus provides classroom basics from pencils, notebooks and pens, to crayons, colored pencils and backpacks for students in need.

Representatives of Concord University presented the school supplies to officials with Raleigh County Schools on Monday, Aug. 10, 2015 at the Raleigh County Board of Education’s administrative offices in Beckley, W.Va.

Along with donations from Concord students, faculty and staff, Stuff the Bus receives generous community support from individuals, organizations and area businesses. According to Pam Wallace, Stuff the Bus organizer, the school supplies presented to the Raleigh County children include items donated recently at two Stuff the Bus collection events at the Beckley Walmart as well as items that were purchased with money collected from fundraisers and business sponsorships.

This is the third year that Concord University has participated in Stuff the Bus. Along with Raleigh County students, West Virginia children in Fayette, Summers, Mercer, Wyoming and Kanawha counties have benefited from the program.

For additional information on Stuff the Bus, contact Pam Wallace at beckley@concord.edu or 304-384-5612.
