Stuff the Bus
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
All Craven County Walmart Stores: New Bern (Neuse Blvd. and Dr. M.L.King, Jr., Blvd.) and Havelock (Hwy. 70)
Partners In Education, the education foundation for Craven County Schools, and Craven County Schools, are providing an opportunity for our community to donate school supplies for our students in need. This event is coordinated with Back to School sales to encourage support of our efforts to assist families who may not have the resources to purchase school supplies for their child.
We need your help with filling up the buses with school supplies: Paper, pencils, markers, crayons, erasers, glue sticks, tissues, and hand sanitizer are some of the items needed. A shopping list will be available the day of the event, and is currently available on the PIE website at www.CravenPartners.com.
Many sponsors have agreed to be drop-off locations, and will collect items until Wednesday, August 12: They are - in Havelock: Havelock Chamber of Commerce at 201 Tourist Center Drive; in New Bern: BB&T at 375 S. Front Street, Century 21 Zaytoun-Raines at 312 S. Front St.; Wells Fargo downtown at 401 S. Front St., and Joe Alcoke Auto and Truck Service at 3405 Dr. M.L. King, Jr., Blvd.
