“Stuff the Bus” restocks supplies for Perkins County students PDF Print E-mail

Area schools and students will think they’ve hit the jackpot when they are treated to a myriad of brand new school supplies courtesy of Perkins County residents.
Behind the idea for the school supply collection deemed “Stuff the Bus”  is Ciara Collins of Adams Bank and Trust.
Beginning mid-August, Adams Bank sites in Grant and Madrid began collecting various items for students. The schools will now have extra supplies on hand to help students restock what they need— which will alleviate the cost for parents.  
Perkins County Elementary, Perkins County Middle School, the Golden Plains Christian School and the Perkins County Christian School were the recipients of extra supplies such as notebook paper, pencils, pencil bags and boxes, pens, highlighters, crayons, markers, erasers, glue, rulers, scissors, folders, Kleenex and more.
Collins said the public input for the schools to keep extra supplies on hand is greatly appreciated.
