Stuff the Bus provides school supplies for teachers

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Sunday local teachers got to go on a shopping spree for school supplies, but they didn't have to pay.

It was all the result of the Stuff the Bus campaign. Hundreds of teachers were on hand sorting through supplies.

The program is geared towards helping teachers and students get proper items for the school year.

Often, teachers pay out of pocket to stock their classroom. Organizers say it's a great community event.

"Education is critical foundation to a full life, you succeed in school to succeed in life. And if more kids succeed in school our community benefits," says Wayne Collins.

Last year, approximately $16,000 in school supplies was collected at the market.

This year's Stuff the Bus drive ends October 31 and the collection goal  is $50,000 dollars in supplies.
