United Way of Pioneer Valley, Peter Pan Announce Stuff the Bus Program

United Way of Pioneer Valley and Peter Pan Bus Lines will launch the annual Stuff the Bus campaign with a press-conference event on Friday, July 27 at 11 a.m. outside the Target store at the Holyoke Mall. The campaign will collect new school supplies from July 27 through Aug. 16. The supplies will be distributed in new backpacks to children who are homeless in Chicopee, Holyoke, Springfield, Westfield, West Springfield, and South Hadley.“Holyoke Mall is proud to be a collection site once again for this important initiative,” said Lisa Wray, the mall’s director of Marketing. “Shoppers purchasing their own back-to-school clothes, shoes, and supplies will have the opportunity to donate supplies for those in need while they’re here. Holyoke Mall stores and employees will also be running their own school-supply drives to support this. Together we can give children the tools they need to succeed in the classroom.”
