It's time again to "Stuff the Bus" in Ashland County.

The United Way of Ashland County wants to fill a school bus with school supplies.  Associated Charities will then distribute those supplies to children that need them, but can't afford to purchase them.

It's simple to help out.

Just look for the school bus in the Ashland Walmart parking lot.  It'll be there this Saturday, August 3rd, and next Saturday, August 10th, from 9-3 each day.

If you can't make it out to the big yellow bus, you can take school supplies to the United Way office, at 132 West Main Street, in Ashland.  You can also make a cash donation.  Learn more by visiting www.uwashlandoh.org.

The most needed supply is backpacks.  Organizers say they need "lots" of them.

Here is a list of the other most needed school supplies:

Boxes of 24 count crayons; rulers; glue sticks; protractor; washable Crayola markers; pocket folders with brads; red, blue and black pens; 3-ring binders; sticky notes; regular markers for older kids; notebook paper, wide or college-ruled; compass; Klennex; hand sanitizer; scissors, pointed and blunt; yellow highlighters; erasable pens; black dry erase markers; colored pencils; school boxes.
