CLEVELAND– Despite there being only a few short weeks before summer vacation is over, local high school students woke up bright and early Thursday morning to help others in need.

Talented students from three area high schools used their skills to support our ‘Stuff the Bus‘ Campaign.

It’s the 7th year for FOX 8’s event, in which we collect school supplies for students in need.

All supplies donated will go to the Cleveland Kids in Need Resource Center, where teachers from local schools will be able to select items for their classrooms and students.

School districts who will benefit from the campaign are Garfield Heights, Cleveland, East Cleveland, Euclid, Maple Heights, Bedford, Warrensville Heights, and parts of Lakewood.

FOX 8’s own Stacey Frey spoke with Eric Gordon, C.E.O of Cleveland Schools, about how the donations will impact the lives of students, and the upcoming school year.

The Euclid cheerleaders motivated volunteers Thursday morning through their creative cheers that they tailored specifically to the event.

The Cleveland Heights High School Barbershoppers sang in four-part harmony to support the cause.

In a never before seen event, school rivals teamed together in support of the campaign.

The Warrensville Heights High School drumline set the tempo for the Euclid High School cheerleaders.
