At the end of July going into August of 2018 Joe Peterson Insurance teamed up with Townsquare Media together with our local Tri-Cities schools. For 3 weeks, we collected backpacks and school supplies for area students in need..
The goal of our Stuff the Bus drive is to ensure every child in the Tri-City area is adequately supplied on the first day of school.
"We had an overwhelming show of support from the local community with our annual school supply drive. We had families from all over the Tri-Cities area show up with school supplies to support the cause. Contributions to the annual school supply drive help make a difference for the first day of school and throughout the school year Donations help provide the tools of learning for students that in many cases come from tough and uncertain backgrounds. These gifts help provide grade-appropriate supplies that fill backpacks and let needy students seamlessly fit into their classroom surroundings. I am grateful for all of the volunteers and individuals that stepped up and contributed to this needy cause."
