Stuff the Bus Campaign

August 02, 2007 - TRC

August 1, 2007 is the kick-off for the annual “Stuff the Bus” campaign !

Penquis CAP, Inc. co-ordinates the campaign. Parents who call and request school supplies for their children are encouraged to call directly to the program's central staff by calling 1-800-215-4942.

Requests for school supplies will be accepted through Friday, August 17th.

Phone calls will be made to parents as their child or children’s supplies become available for pickup.

Parents will again this year be able to pick up the supplies at the nearest Penquis CAP office as has been done in the past. The pick up of their students' school supplies by parents begins, Monday, August 20th and ends at 4:30 p.m., Friday, August 24.

School supplies are provided by customer donations at participating merchants and with their continued generosity Penquis CAP will be able to help many, many low income parents and students.

Thank you all for your support !
