Stuff the Bus with backpacks and binders this Saturday at NRV sites, Saturday

A local Girl Scout troop volunteering at the United Way of the New River Valley’s “Stuff the Bus” drive collecting school supplies for children in need in the New River Valley.  Last year, residents across the New River Valley served over 500 children. The Stuff the Bus Event will take place Saturday, July 20th from 9am to 6pm at the Christiansburg Walmart.  Radford Public Library and Taylor Office Supply, The Floyd County Tourism & Chamber Of Commerce Office, and Slaughter’s Supermarket. Three school buses from Montgomery County, Radford City, and Floyd County will be parked out front, and the community is urged to come out and “stuff the bus” to send local children back to school prepared to learn.
