A tremendous need remains for volunteers for this year’s Stuff the Bus. “The whole program rests upon the generosity of the community and the volunteers who graciously give of their time to help out at both of our local Walmarts,” says Major Hank Harwell, the Corps Officer of the Harrisonburg Salvation Army.
To volunteer, please call Dale or Dave at The Salvation Army, 434-4854, or email Dave, email@example.com. Volunteers are particularly needed on Saturday late afternoon and throughout Sunday.
Stuff the Bus will be taking place at all area Walmarts from Friday August 5th through to Sunday August 7th. The annual Stuff the Bus enables people and groups to purchase school supplies for children who are from low income homes.
In Harrisonburg/Rockingham Stuff the Bus is a joint partnership between the United Way, the Harrisonburg Salvation Army, WHSV-TV 3, and the Verstandig stations, WSVA, Q-101, and Fresh 96.1.
In August 2015 the Harrisonburg Salvation Army provided school supplies to 433 children. Those who are unable to attend Stuff the Bus may mail their gifts to The Salvation Army – Stuff the Bus, PO Box 468, Harrisonburg, VA 22803. Donors should also note “Stuff the Bus” on the memo line.
