PORTER COUNTY | NIPSCO continues to help Porter County residents with a donation of 50 Book Bags with school supplies and $2,400 to help the Army serve the community with additional school supplies.

The Salvation Army of Porter County is asking for help to get school supplies to as many children as possible so that they will have the tools they need to learn. This is the 7th year for theĀ  Stuff the Bus school supplies program.

Stuff the Bus is a program for low income families living in Porter County whose children need school supplies for the 2013-2014 school year. (Children must be age 5 by Aug. 1, and registered to attend a school or be home-schooled). This program is for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

The school items requested include: pens, pencils, paper, rulers, book bags or backpack, binders, trapper keeper, notebook, folders, crayons, markers, colored pencils, protractor, and calculator.

Along with purchasing school supplies, other options include sending a check donation for The Salvation Army "Stuff the Bus" Program P.O. Box 828, Portage, IN 46368. Call (219) 762-9191.
