The Huron Township Department of Public Safety is partnering with local schools and community groups to collect new school supplies for the upcoming school year during their annual “Stuff the Bus” initiative.
The Huron School District, Summit Academy Schools, Huron Township Rotary, Willow United Methodist Church and Huron Township Goodfellows are joining forces with the department for the school supply drive.
New school supplies, backpacks, child-size face masks, hand sanitizer, washable markers, and small denomination gift cards to Target, Meijer, or Walmart are needed to assist local families in need.
Anyone interested in dropping off donations can do so at the Huron Township Police
Department, 36500 S. Huron Rd. New Boston, beginning Aug. 3. Drop-offs will be accepted from 8 a.m to 10 p.m.
“Even as an adult, I still remember the feeling of going to the first day of school with my new clothes, backpack, and school supplies. Unfortunately, some kids who go to school in our community never get to experience that feeling. My favorite part of this job is having a platform to help kids in my community that can use it,” said Everette Robbins, director of public safety.
“I have seen first-hand the generosity of this community, especially when it comes to our children through the shop with a hero Christmas Program. I am hoping that we can all come together to stuff the busses. All the collected items will be given to kids who show up the first week of school without the things they need. I am excited to see what this community can do. I want to thank all of our community partners for the support. We always get immediate support from Superintendent Rowe and Superintendent Hedke and they are as excited about this initiative as we are. The busses are here, and we are ready to go.”
