EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) -The Salvation Army’s Stuff the Bus event is this weekend to help gather school supplies for teachers as kids head back to school.

“We work with a local charity called Teacher Locker,” said Alex Rahman, a food organizer and volunteer coordinator for The Salvation Army. “Teachers are going to be able to go to Teacher Locker and say, ‘Hey this is the stuff and items that I need, do you guys have this?’ And we are hoping they’ll be able to say yes.”

Rahman noted that The Salvation Army’s longstanding relationship with Walmart has allowed this event to happen seamlessly for over a decade.

He also noted that Teacher Locker would not be able to provide help to teachers without the overwhelming support of the community.

The event will take place at the four Walmart locations in the Evansville-Warrick County area. They will be gathering donations Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
