Thousands of children in our area will soon begin the school year without even the most basic classroom necessities. To be ready to learn, they need the proper supplies. Hi, we're Mike and Tricia and we're asking for your help in giving these children a smart start to the upcoming school year through our annual Mike and Tricia Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive.

This year’s collection drive begins Monday, August 20th. Every morning next week, the 93.1 KISS-FM van and the Region 19 school bus will be parked at a different location between 7 – 9 A.M. serving as a drop off point for your back to school donations.

Here is a list of essential items we’re targeting [but by all means give what you can] :

• Pencils, Pens, Crayons, Markers, Highlighters, Erasers
• Loose-leaf Paper, Spiral Notebooks
• Folders, 3-Ring Binders
• Pencil Boxes, Kleenex, Hand Sanitizer
• Glue Sticks or Bottles

In anticipation, we would like to encourage any businesses, church groups, organizations, or individuals who wish to help, to do their own collection campaign on our behalf prior to the week of August 20th. If you plan to assist, please contact Tricia Martinez at 544-9300 or via email at tricia@ksii.com to coordinate your efforts.
