GRAND JUNCTION, Colo — “Stuff the Bus” an event for residents to donate school supplies to Mesa County Schools was put on Wednesday by Academy Mortgage.
Residents also got a free lunch for attending the event and a chance to say hi to their neighbors.
This is the fifth year of the event with the BBQ.
Donations were accepted online last year because of COVID-19.
Those involved with the event say helping kids is a great way to kick off the school year.
Merica Street, with Academy Mortgage, says, “kids are our future, and we need to support them in any way that we can. I feel that even just the school supplies is a great way to give back, they’re always in need of everything, just being there for them is very important.”
