CLEVELAND — It is time to make a difference in the lives of the children of our community. It is time to get ready for the FOX 8 Stuff the Bus. This is our 8th year and we hope it is our best year to date.

We have had the fortunate partnership with the Cleveland Kids In Need Resource Center which provides teachers from area schools that qualify for help, the opportunity to shop for free to get school supplies for their students. ​

stuffthebus1Thanks to your wonderful support, the program has been able to grow each year and now all of Cuyahoga County schools that qualify can participate.

We will be collecting the school supplies this Thursday, July 31, from 6:30a-7p right in our front yard here at FOX 8, 5800 Dick Goddard Way.

Here is what we need:

  •   We really need crayons this year; 24-count box of crayons preferred
  •   Wide or College rule filler paper or notebooks
  •   2 pocket folders
  •   Number 2 pencils
  •   Construction paper
  •   8 1/2 by 11 copy paper
  •   Colored markers and pencils
  •   Black and Blue pens
  •   Boxes of tissue
  •   Anti-bacterial soap or wipes.

Plus, we will always take back packs, or school bags, art supplies, anything and everything school supply related. To our area businesses that may have old letterhead or things with old logos– teachers can use it, so bring it down.

The FOX 8 Stuff the Bus is sponsored by Great Clips and Hudec Dental.

Please join us on July 31 and help us give a great start to the school year for our area children.
