Salvation Army needs help to ‘stuff the bus’ with school supplies

VANDERBURGH CO., Ind. (WFIE) - The Salvation Army needs donations from the community for an upcoming campaign.

The charitable organization is teaming up with Walmart to collect school supplies with its “Stuff the Bus” event.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the organization will not be able to provide volunteers to help out at various Walmart locations, which officials say makes this year more challenging.

Donations boxes will be set up at four Walmart stores around Evansville, as well as Boonville and Newburgh.

“Since there are more families desperately in financial difficulties, the need for supplies will be even greater,” Major Lauren Carter said.

The campaign is set to run from August 7-9.
