ST. GEORGE — United Way Dixie is once again partnering with Allconnect for their “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive on July 29 in the Allconnect parking lot, 1572 S. Dixie Drive, in St. George. This is the second year the two groups have worked together with the community to gather, donate and stuff a full-size school bus to the top with school supplies.
Donated supplies from the Stuff the Bus event will go directly to children in need within the Washington County School District, helping them start the school year off with success.
Businesses and groups are encouraged to support the drive by hosting a drive for school supplies during the month of July and then joining United Way Dixie and Allconnect on July 29 to stuff that bus.
