FORT SMITH, Ark. — The United Way's Fill the Bus campaign in Fort Smith and NWA will look a little different this year.
In the past, community members could find donation sites at local Walmart stores. Due to COVID restrictions, Walmart is not allowing buses to be parked in front of its stores to collect donations.
In response to Walmart's COVID protocols, the United Way of Fort Smith Area will be hosting a one-day back-to-school bash at their office on N. 13th Street from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, August 13.
The first 100 people to donate school supplies will receive a free Fill the Bus t-shirt.
You can find needed school supplies by visiting this link.
The area United Way offices are making it easier than ever for viewers to help kids get ready to learn. Viewers can select their favorite school district for donation on a mobile, laptop, or desktop device.
