August 26, 2019

​The annual United Way Alberta Northwest and Staples Grande Prairie 'Stuff-A-Bus' event in support of the Tools for School Program was held in the Staples Grande Prairie parking lot on Monday, August 26, 2019, where the group accepted donations of school supplies and funds until 2:00 p.m.

If you missed them at Staples, find them at the Redwood Inn & Suites, 8711-99 Street in Clairmont, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 27 and 8:30 a.m. - noon on Wednesday morning, August 28.

Then begins the task of stuffing school bags on Wednesday afternoon, followed by distribution to their partner organizations.

If you need help with purchasing school supplies for your family, ask your school office about the United Way Tools for School Program.
