Customers and employees of First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Greene County recently donated hundreds of school supplies for Greene County United Way’s 17th annual “Stuff the Bus” campaign.

Supplies from folders, notebooks and scissors to pencils, crayons and markers 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 nearly 20 other sites around the 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. 14, at the JC Pavilion at Lions Club Park in Waynesburg. Students can board the bus and select a backpack during the picnic, which will also feature free food and activities 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.
