Customers and employees of First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Greene County recently donated more than a dozen bins and bags worth of school supplies for Greene County United Way’s 15th annual “Stuff the Bus” campaign. Supplies from backpacks and lunch boxes to notebooks and crayons, as well as monetary donations, were collected at First Federal of Greene County’s Waynesburg, Carmichaels and Mt. Morris offices and at the Waynesburg drive-thru. Supplies and donations were also collected at 20 other sites around Greene County.
Backpacks full of supplies will then be loaded on a school bus and distributed during the “Stuff the Bus” picnic, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 16, at the JC Pavilion at Lions Club Park in Waynesburg. Each student can board the bus and select a backpack during the picnic, which will also feature free food, activities and library books for the children receiving backpacks. This year’s “Stuff the Bus” campaign is sponsored by First Federal of Greene County. For more information, or to register for the picnic, call Greene County United Way at 724-852-1009 or dial 211.
