Sussex Lioness, Lions, Leo Clubs “Stuff the Bus” for kids

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 Paul Mielke, Ph.D., for distribution to students in the Hamilton School District.

Almost $2,100 in school supplies were donated in the third year of the campaign through donations made by community members at Lions Daze and financial donations from the Sussex Lions and Leo Clubs. Community members were encouraged to drop off school supplies at various community events, North Shore Bank and Associated Bank in Sussex.

Sussex Lioness Stuff the Bus Chair JoAnne Swanson organized the successful campaign.
