CLEVELAND, Ohio -- What an amazing and record-breaking day for our 8th annual ‘Stuff The Bus’ campaign.

Thanks to you, our wonderful viewers, we filled 12 ½ buses for the Cleveland Kids In Need Resource Center. We broke last year’s record of 9 buses filled.

These supplies will help students in Cuyahoga County.

People also donated nearly $8,000 in cash and checks to help with the campaign.

Any school in Cuyahoga County where 65 percent of the students are on the free federal lunch program are able to participate. Teachers will be invited to the resource center to pick up the free school supplies for their students.

A special thanks to our corporate sponsors, Great Clips and Hudec Dental, for their donations and support. And a shout out to Panera Bread for their donation and food delivery for our volunteers.
