The Salvation Army of Broward is doing their part to make sure no kid is left behind during Covid-19. They are launching a “Stuff the Bus” campaign to aid children in virtual school supplies.
The campaign starts on August 3, 2020 and will offer people several ways to be involved with donations to the campaign. All supplies received will be donated to school aged children across Broward County.
Items that are being sought for donations include: pencils, paper, pens, calculators, markers, colored pencils, binders, notebooks, glue sticks and various other school supplies.
“These are trying times for our children as COVID-19 continues to ravage South Florida claiming lives and jobs, leaving more families without the income to buy basic school supplies,” Maj. Stephen Long, area commander for The Salvation Army of Broward County, said in a statement. “The Salvation Army of Broward is here to guide our community through this hardship and provide our children with the necessary tools to succeed even while learning at home in a virtual environment.
With multiple drop-off areas, supporters can donate supplies at the following locations:
- Walmart: 4700 S. Flamingo Road, Cooper City
- Walmart: 6001 Coral Ridge Drive, Coral Springs
- Salvation Army of Broward Headquarters: 1445 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale
