    Come on people! When you’re out shopping pick up some items and donate and stuff the bus!

    Teachers don’t get paid enough and often times they are buying supplies for their classes and students. Donate donate donate and take the burden off the teachers.

    Let’s get these kids the supplies they need to be productive.

    (The Mormon church has lots of money they should fill 3+ buses)
