• 9 School Tools' Stuff a Bus returns to Caldwell county


    Community members in Caldwell county are ramping up for their annual "Stuff a Bus" event on August 15. Communities in Schools of Caldwell County and Caldwell County Schools are hosting the full day event at three locations: Caldwell County Education Center, Kincaid Factory Outlet and Chick-fil-A at Smiths Crossroads.

    In partnership with WSOC-TV's 9 School Tools campaign, Communities in Schools of Caldwell County asks the community to donate school supplies for local students in need.

    "Partnering with 9 School Tools and local businesses helps fulfill the needs for the students of Caldwell County," said Dana Rosario, office manager at Communities in Schools of Caldwell County. "This event brings together the resources in our community to help us ensure that students of Caldwell County have the tools they need to succeed in school."

    For the past 20 years, in partnership with Communities in Schools Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Classroom Central, the WSOC-TV 9 School Tools program collects school supplies, which are then distributed to students in grades K – 12.  9 School Tools’ donations stay in the county where they're donated -- so all of the "Stuff a Bus" donations will help students in Caldwell County Schools.

    From July 10 through Aug. 25, you can donate school supplies at over 40 donation locations across 22 counties in the Carolinas.  You can find your nearest donation location by clicking on this link 9 School Tools Donation Locations.
