United Way of Junction City-Geary County, working with local schools, is kicking off their 10th annual “Stuff the Bus” event. They are asking members of the Junction City/Geary County area to donate school supplies to help children in the district whose families may struggle to provide the necessary items to start the school year.
With the 2021-2022 academic year fast approaching, now is the time many families begin to buy the necessary paper, pencils and glue for school. It is not hard for a family to spend $50.00 or more per child, and that only covers the most basic of supplies. It certainly doesn’t include clothing and shoes. So the costs add up quickly.
