The Ninth annual "Stuff The Bus" school supply drive is underway.

The "Stuff The Bus" is hosted by the United Way of Texarkana and this year there will be a special event at local Sonic Drive-ins that you can participate in on Saturday from 10 AM until 2 PM.

Your donation of supplies or monetary donations will go towards helping over 10,000 students in twelve school districts throughout four counties. One hundred percent of your funds stay one hundred percent local. Please help the United Way of Greater Texarkana by donating to the Stuff the Bus school supply drive.

The United Way of Greater Texarkana has collaborated with more than 30 local businesses to put this year's Stuff-The-Bus on to collect school supplies for children that need help in our local schools. The Stuff-The-Bus program is organized and driven by volunteers to assist struggling families in getting the necessary supplies for the upcoming school year.
