Another Stuff the Bus campaign is in the books, and this year's drive for school supplies in Grand Junction was a giant success.

Local Radio Stations Do Stuff the Bus Again

Every year, Townsquare Media radio stations and their partners team up to collect school supplies for Mesa County Schools, teachers, and students. Stuff the Bus helps fill the gap for students who can't afford all of the supplies they need for the school year. This year the community and sponsors stepped up in a big way.

Much Thanks and Gratitude To the Community

For the past several weeks, a Student Transportation of America school bus has literally been parked inside Mesa Mall. Community members have stopped by to put their donations of school supplies inside the bus. Monday, the bus was emptied by a great group of volunteers, and the school supplies were distributed to Mesa County Schools. The campaign was a huge success and we couldn't thank the community, our sponsors, and partners, and volunteers enough for their involvement and efforts with Stuff the Bus. Take a look at the photos below.
