Those interested in donating school supplies for children in need in the East Baton Rouge Parish school system can stop by Office Depot on College Drive on Wednesday for the fourth annual Stuff the Bus event.

Lead sponsors for the event, scheduled from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., include WBRZ-TV, Volunteers In Public Schools and the parish school system.

Volunteers will be on hand to help load buses with donated items such as pencils, binders, pens, paper towels, backpacks, erasers and scissors.

The donations will be divided among the school district’s elementary, middle and high schools.

The first day of school is Aug. 10.

During the 2010 campaign, 3 1/2 school buses were filled with donations valued at almost $55,000, according to a news release from the school system.
