‘Stuff the Bus’ drive to benefit 2 Ky. districts

Posted on August 11, 2011

FLORENCE, Ky. — A school supplies drive, hosted by Chick-fil-A and Stockpilingmoms.com, will be held on Friday at the Chick-fil-A location here to benefit Boone County Schools and Kenton County Schools.

Two school buses will be parked in front of the restaurant from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to receive donations as part of the Stuff the Bus School Supplies Drive. One bus will collect supplies for Boone County Schools while the other bus will collect for Kenton County Schools.

"The start of the school year is quickly approaching," Chick-fil-A Franchise Operator Dustin DiChiara said. "We hope the community will come out in full force to support our local students and families in need this year."

The bus that collects the most donations will receive an additional $500 for its district.
