It's time to help kids go back to school: the annual Kits for Kids school supply donation drive is underway in Columbus. The "Stuff the Truck" drive began at Headquarters Nissan off of Whittlesey Boulevard in Columbus on Wednesday.
The goal of the two-day event is to collect donated school supplies for needy kids in our area. Items that are donated are placed on the back of a brand new monster truck.
WTVM is partnering with Headquarter Nissan to make sure kids in our area have the supplies they need before school starts.
"We want folks to come out and bring any school supplies they may have," said Erin Williams for Headquarters Nissan. "Go pick something up. One item, two items, whatever they can afford, bring it on by, we've got this red truck that we are very optimistic that we can fill up. That's our goal – we want to stuff this truck."
"Stuff the Truck" ends Thursday evening at 8 p.m. at Headquarter Nissan.
If you drop off a donation you can register to win a three-day, two-night trip to Panama City, Florida and receive a free oil change.
