Stuff the Bus: Not too late to donate
FOR CITY TIMES
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – If you have not already donated to the annual “Stuff the Bus” school-supply drive, it is not too late to do so.
|Many businesses have been conducting separate donation drives, and will deliver those supplies during Lunch by the River Thursday, Aug. 4 from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Veteran’s Memorial Park.

Donations can be brought to Lunch by the River Aug. 4. No time to shop? Monetary donations are appreciated and help with additional supply needs.
