As the new school year draws closer, many children in our area will lack the supplies they need to enter the classroom ready to learn. Hi, we’re Mike and Tricia, and with your help we can give these children the necessary resources to succeed via our 19th Annual Mike and Tricia Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive.

When you do your back to school shopping, please consider picking up a few basic school supplies for our drive. Here are some of the essential items we’re suggesting, but by all means give what you can:

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

Then starting Monday, Aug. 10 through Friday, August 14, look for the 93.1 KISS-FM van and the Region 19 school bus between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. at one of the following locations and drop off your donations:

• Monday, Aug. 10 - Walmart Supercenter, 4530 Woodrow Bean Transmountain Dr
• Tuesday, Aug. 11 - Walmart Supercenter, 7555 N Mesa
• Wednesday, Aug. 12 - Walmart Supercenter, 1850 N Zaragoza
• Thursday, Aug. 13 - Office Depot, 1111 Geronimo at Bassett Place
• Friday, Aug. 14 - KISS-FM parking lot/studio, 4180 N. Mesa

School supplies can also be dropped off at the radio station Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Thanks for giving children a smart start to the upcoming school year, and thanks for helping Mike and Tricia "Stuff the Bus"
