Many families in the Casper community struggle to purchase school supplies each year. All children need access to the tools they need in order to learn.

Parents spend between $60 and $100 each year to provide one child with necessary school supplies.  This can create a hardship on many families, especially if they have more than one child.

The Casper Area Education Foundation, Natrona County School District and the Salvation Army are asking for your help to "Stuff the Bus".
