With school just around the corner, one charitable organization is helping kids start the year off on right foot.
The Eastside Community Ministry will be hosting "Stuff The Bus" this Friday and Saturday to help collect school supplies for lower income children and teens.
"There financial requirements for those to be a part of the program, and we ask for people to come and provide proof of residence, proof of number of children in the home, family in the home, proof of income and proof of expenses," said Executive Director, Bob Davison.
From pencils to paper, Davidson said any donations of basic school supplies will help.
"They can start school off on the right foot, one of the avenues out of poverty, is through education, and so education is very important. "
The bus will be at Walmart south on Friday and Walmart North on Saturday, both days from 10-2 p.m.
