The United Way of Salt Lake is getting ready to launch its annual "Stuff the Bus" campaign to help provide 5,000 children from low-income families with back-to-school supplies.
Items will be collected throughout August, put into backpacks and delivered to more than 20 United Way Neighborhood Centers serving children in need and their families in the Salt Lake City area.
To donate supplies or volunteer for the campaign, sign up at uw.org.
Supplies needed include backpacks, pencils, pens, notebook paper, spiral notebooks, pocket folders, markers, colored pencils, scissors, rulers and crayons.
