The ‘Stuff the Bus’ program is a way to help make sure every child starts to school with the basic supplies they need.”May said schools make school supply lists available to their students and lists are sometimes made public.“Those who would like to help the Salvation Army ‘Stuff the Bus’ are encouraged to check the lists if possible,” she said. “If not, paper, No. 2 pencils, crayons and markers are always good choices along with tissue and hand sanitizers.
