    Community Partners Join United Way of West Florida to Stuff the Bus
     
    Pensacola, FL – On July 21 you can help students in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties get the tools they need to succeed this school year.
     
    Stuff the Bus is a school supply collection drive coordinated by United Way of West Florida, in partnership with Escambia County Schools, Santa Rosa County Schools, Cat Country, NewsRadio 92.3, the Pensacola News Journal, and 3 Cares WEAR. It is the only school supply drive supported by both school districts.
     
    You can purchase and/or drop off supplies at participating Walmart locations on July 21 from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. There are three locations in Escambia County and three in Santa Rosa County. School supply lists will be available at all the Walmart locations.
