Every year the United Way of Northwest Arkansas helps some of the more than 27,000 children living in poverty get ready to go back to school.
Supplies from the Fill The Bus program go to 17 different school districts across Northwest Arkansas and Southwest Missouri. Last year the United Way collected about 110,000 school supplies. This year, they hope to collect more than 125,000 supplies for kids.
You can help Fill The Bus by bringing school supplies to one of the 10 participating Walmart locations. Then you can put your supplies either on the bus or in the marked bins inside stores.
