The North Platte Jaycees chapter will host their first Stuff the Bus in partnership with Walmart this weekend to help secure donations of school supplies for needy children in the area.
The group will be at Walmart on both Saturday and Sunday, July 30th and 31st, from 1-5 PM with a school bus provided by Dusty Trails. As patrons enter the store, they can pick up a list of supplies needed for kids in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade. Patrons can purchase one item or the entire list, whatever they feel comfortable with and bring it back to the bus.
The Jaycees will then purchase backpacks to put the items in and bring them to the Lincoln County Raceway to distribute them to children in need on August 13th. If you know a child who may be in need, attend the races on August 13th or simply message the North Platte Jaycees on Facebook.
