Help Channel 2 'Stuff the Bus' for Back to School!

Help Channel 2 'Stuff the Bus' this Saturday

ATLANTA — Every year we ask for your help to send homeless children and kids living in group homes back to school. And each year, you bring the supplies that help put a smile on a child's face.

"The reason we do 'Stuff the Bus' is because there are thousands of children who need more support," said Channel 2 Action News Anchor Linda Stouffer.

Stuff the Bus helps students show up not just prepared but confident. Having that backpack, and feeling good and walking into school with that confidence, it makes you feel like you can do everything.
