Madison Heights, VA - You can help area kids get much needed school supplies before the new year starts. Q99 Radio is back on board with its 13th annual 'Pack the Bus' campaign.
They're helping 23 school districts in our area. On Monday, they collected donations at the Wal-Marts in Wytheville and Madison Heights.
They'll be making a total of 14 stops over the next five days. At the end of each day, the supplies are loaded up on each school's bus and dropped off at the school. They've collected about $500,000 worth of school supplies in the last 13 years.
"Over the years, we've seen even more of a need for the school supplies with the economy being a little down, families struggling so we try to fill in the gap," said Dick Daniels, morning show host of Q99.
Wal-Mart and Pepsi also partners with Q-99 for the Pack the Bus event.
