In the Salt Lake area? Here's a great opportunity to help.

VOLUNTEERS! Help United Way of Salt Lake Stuff the Bus with school
supplies for 5,000 kids!

Salt Lake City – Join United Way of Salt Lake on Thursday, Sept. 8, to help stuff 5,000 backpacks with school supplies for low-income kids in our community.

What: Stuff the Bus Public Volunteer Project

Volunteers will work to:
• Stuff each backpack with pens, pencils, glue, paper, notebooks, rulers, crayons
and other generously donated school supplies
• Package stuffed backpacks into boxes
• Load backpacks onto school buses for delivery

When: United Way of Salt Lake’s Annual Day of Caring
September 8, 2011
11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Where: The Gateway
18 North Rio Grande Street

Project will be set up outside in front of the Grand Hall (top of the stairs between Thaifoon and Urban Outfitters)

School buses will be parked on 400 West in front of The Depot

School buses will be on hand to be “stuffed” with backpacks and make deliveries to more than 15 area schools. If 500 volunteers participate, that’s only 10 backpacks per person. Come on community, our schoolchildren need you!
