***RESCHEDULED TO VIRTUAL EVENT ENDING ON AUG. 10*** – Fill the Bus
***RESCHEDULED TO TO VIRTUAL EVENT ENDING ON AUG. 10*** – Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the United Way of Northwest Arkansas will hold the annual Fill the Bus Event in a 100% virtual format starting immediately and wrapping up Aug. 10. Fill the Bus is an initiative in partnership with Walmart and sponsored by BIC, Crayola, and Coca-Cola, providing school supplies to disadvantaged children that helps to create a road map to prosperity for children in Northwest Arkansas.
Through the partnership with Walmart, the community can purchase school supplies through the “Walmart Registry for Good” and the items ship directly to the United Way of NWA office. The supplies will be distributed to 15 local school districts as the first day of the new school year approaches. While school will look different for many in our area, the students need us more than ever. A link to the registry to donate virtually is available on the United Way of NWA website at unitedwaynwa.org/bus. For more than a decade, the annual Fill the Bus school supply drive has been providing Northwest Arkansas children with tools to help them get a head start on the school year and United Way of NWA is committed to providing for students in need even through a pandemic.
