JJO’s Stuffing the Bus
Jimmy is continuing his Stuffing the Bus School Supply Drive to make sure every child has the backpacks and school supplies they need to prepare for the upcoming school year. Each year upwards of 5,000 children in grades K-12 were in need of backpacks and school supplies and children without a backpack or school supplies on day 1 are more likely to be bullied during the school year.
This year we will be partnering with several organizations, including the Tyler Area Partnership for Education, coming together to make sure no child is left behind worrying about a backpack and school supplies for the upcoming school year.
JJO’s Stuffing the Bus will be held in the Walmart parking lot 6801 South Broadway in Tyler, TX beginning Friday, July 12, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. and continuing until at least Monday, July 22, 2019, when it will be determined if 2,000 backpacks and the school supplies to fill them has been collected. Again, Jimmy will be living in a box (POD), unshaven and unbathed, until at least 2,000 backpacks and the school supplies needed is raised for East Texas Children in Need.
