Every child needs pencils, scissors, crayons, and notebooks to start a successful school year. Char-Em United Way is helping foster chidren's educations by collecting much needed school supplies for students in Charlevoix and Emmet Counties.
Stuff the Bus is an annual campaign sponsored by Char-Em United Way to gather school supplies for local children in need. With school budget cuts and many families struggling to get by, the donated school supplies can make a huge difference in a student's education. Just before the school year begins, all items are distributed to each school in the Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District.
This year's Stuff the Bus will be on Saturday, August 13, 2011. We will need lots of volunteers to make this event a success. The planning has already begun so please register as a volunteer!
Char-Em United Way is also accepting monetary donations to purchase school supplies for students in need. Donations should be mailed to Char-Em United Way, PO Box 1701, Petoskey, MI 49770, with Stuff the Bus noted.
Artists gather at Charlevoix's waterfront for this annual juried fine art show. Painters, sculptures, jewelers, photographers and more will be on hand.
