Stuff the Bus and charity bowling

Posted: Updated:

Students and teachers from the Marana School district can look forward to starting their school year off right.

A two day school supplies fundraiser called "Stuff the Bus" wrapped up sunday evening, outside the Walmart on Cortaro Road.

Tompkins Family Chiropractic and Jabez Hair and Nail Salon organized the drive to help out the district, which was hit hard by budget cuts.

Lots of children in our area need more than school supplies during the year -- they need homes, and families.

La Paloma Family Services, which specializes in helping at risk children in the Foster Care System, held their first bowling tournament to help raise money for that cause. Money raised from Sunday's fundraiser will go towards foster children and school supplies.
