“Stuff The Bus” To Help Children Prepare For School

Stuff The bus 2017 pic #2 

The Salvation Army is so excited to be working with Wild 104.3 FM Amarillo, Tommy “The Hacker”, Angel Dee, AND Blazin 105 to collect brand new packages of socks for our Shoe and Sock Program! Beginning this Saturday, July 15th, 2017, at the Walmart on Coulter St from 11:00am – 3:00pm, Tommy “The Hacker”, Angel Dee, Balzin 105, and with our communities support, will stuff “The Hacker Morning Show” bus with brand new packages of socks for children in need right here in Amarillo!!

It’s difficult for parents, whether single or not, to purchase school supplies AND to provide brand new shoes and socks for their continually growing children. Let’s help these parents so they don’t have to decide whether to keep the lights on or whether to make sure their children are adequately prepared to enter the school year with confidence.

Upcoming Stuff The Bus Events:

Walmart Amarillo – E Interstate 40 11:00am -3:00pm

Walmart Amarillo – Canyon Dr 11:00am – 3:00pm

For more information about The Salvation Army’s Programs, services, or to volunteer please contact (806)373-6631. Every $30 will help purchase one child a brand new pair of shoes and socks!! Secure donations can be mailed or dropped off at 400 S. Harrison St. or online at www.salvationarmytexas.org/Amarillo.
