As the new school year gets underway, many El Paso families who are already struggling financially are wondering how to stretch their budgets to include new school supplies for their children. Hi, we’re Mike and Tricia, and we’re asking you to help us help low income families who won't be able to give their children the necessary supplies to succeed academically by contributing to our annual Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive.

Every morning starting Monday, August 12 through Friday, August 16, the 93.1 KISS-FM van and the Region 19 school bus will be parked at the following locations between 7 – 9 a.m serving as a drop off point for your back to school donations:

Monday August 12 - Walmart parking lot on Dyer
Tuesday August 13 - Walmart parking lot on Joe Battle
Wednesday August 14 - Walgreens parking lot on Geronimo and I-10 West
Thursday August 15 - Office Depot parking lot at Bassett Place

This year we've also added the following afternoon drop off locations:

Walgreen’s – 5900 N. Mesa 1p-3p
Walgreen’s – 1210 Wedgewood 5p-7p
Walgreen’s – 12390 Edgemere 5p-7p
Walgreen’s – 8050 N. Mesa 1p-3p

When you do your Back to School shopping for your own children this week/weekend, please consider picking up a few more of whatever you’re getting and help us Stuff the Bus with school supplies. All the school supplies we collect will be donated to the Price’s Creameries Give ‘Em Five Program for distribution.
