FULTON, NY â€“ In an effort to support the United Wayâ€™s Stuff-A-Bus campaign, Pathfinder Bank is conducting an in-house collection of school supplies and selling paper buses to help raise money to purchase school supplies that are less likely to be donated, such as backpacks and calculators, for students in Oswego County who are in need for the upcoming school year.
The United Way is looking to Stuff- A-Bus with school supplies.
â€œEvery year, hundreds of children in Oswego County will enter school without the necessary school supplies and hundreds more will run out of the necessary supplies before the school year is over,â€ said coordinator of the campaign, Ali McGrath. â€œWe are happy to have Pathfinder Bank join us in our Stuff-A- Bus campaign and help us provide those less fortunate with the school supplies they need.â€
Pathfinder Bank is selling paper buses and collecting school supplies at all seven of its Oswego County locations.
Paper buses are also available at: Staples, Route 104 in Oswego, and Key Bank locations in Oswego, Fulton, Parish and Mexico.
In addition to the paper buses, donations of school supplies will be accepted at the following locations now through the culmination of the event on Aug. 13:
Wal-Mart on Route 49 in Central Square
