'Stuff the Bus' volunteers needed
Submitted By Rick La Plante
Once again this year, the Union Landing Walmart has offered to collect school supplies for New Haven Unified School District students with a "Stuff the Bus" event, and volunteers are needed to help.
On August 17-19, a District bus will be parked outside Walmart, and customers will be invited to "Stuff the Bus" by purchasing designated school supplies that can be left in donation bins inside the store or brought outside to the bus.
Although the donation bins will be out all weekend, the district is looking for volunteers to help promote the event during high-volume hours, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 17 through 19. Volunteers will greet customers and hand out fliers, staff the bins to collect donations and thank donors, and sort supplies as they are brought to the bus. Volunteers will be asked to work a three-hour shift, either from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., or 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
If you'd like to help, please email Rick LaPlante at firstname.lastname@example.org stating which shift(s) would best work for you.
