Sussex Lioness, Lions and Leo Clubs teamed up to “Stuff the Bus” with school supplies and books for students in need in the local community. Items were donated to Superintendent Kathleen Cooke, Ph.D., for distribution to students in the Hamilton School District.
With a total of almost 2,200 school supplies, the collection was twice as big as last year when “Stuff the Bus” was initiated. An actual school bus, provided by Dairyland Bus Company, promoted the campaign at community events including the Lions’ Daze Parade and McTeacher Night at McDonald’s. Community members were encouraged to drop off school supplies from June 20 to Aug. 1 at various community events, North Shore Bank and Associated Bank in Sussex.
