Stuff the Bus is wrapping up -- help students in need

Summer vacation is wrapping up, and with it, the chance to help students needing school supplies.

If you haven't heard about the "Stuff the Bus" campaign, you can find more information here. In a nutshell, the campaign seeks to give needy children the supplies needed to get them ready for school. You can donate money or supplies at local banks that have the little bus station on the lobby.

And here's another way you can help. Volunteers are needed to sort through supplies and assemble backpacks next week. Teams will be meeting four days: Wed. through Sat. Aug. 2 to 5, at the Monterey County Office of Education, 901 Blanco Cir. Salinas. Sorting teams will meet from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wed. through Friday and stuffing teams will meet from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
