CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The 10th annual "Stuff the Bus" is just a couple of days away.

Roshelle Went, a kindergarten teacher at Glendale Primary School in Bedford, knows important your generosity is.

Many of her students rely on donations from the Cleveland Kids in Need Resource Center.

That's the organization that collects the school supplies you donate.

We will be collecting school supplies this Thursday, August 4th, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. in the Fox 8 front yard at 5800 Dick Goddard Way.

We will be collecting new school supplies especially the following items:

  • 24 Count Box of Crayons
  • Wide or College Rule Filler Paper or Notebooks
  • 2 Pocket Folders
  • Number 2 Pencils
  • Construction Paper
  • 8 ½ by 11 Copy Paper
  • Colored Markers and Pencils
  • Black and Blue Pens
  • Boxes of Tissue
  • Hand sanitizer or wipes
  • Backpacks and any school or craft supply

All items will go to the Cleveland Kids In Need Resource Center. Teachers from qualifying schools in Cuyahoga County will be able to shop for free for their students.

Last year, we stuffed 9 buses and helped 75,000 students.

Great Clips and Hudec Dental are proud sponsors of the event.
