Today is the day to help needy students

school_suppliesJust a reminder that today is the Stuff the Bus school supply drive at Walmart in Massaponax. Here are the details:

Parrish Learning Zone, Spotsylvania County Schools, University of Mary Washington Athletics, WalMart, Thunder 104.5 and Super Hits 95.9 partnered for the Stuff the Bus supply drive which will be held Aug. 1, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Southpoint Walmart.

Aug. 1 is also the first day of the tax-free weekend for clothes and school supplies, so you could save some money and help others at the same time.
