COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Thousands of school supplies will soon be in the hands of families in need in the Valley - all thanks to the United Way's Stuff the Bus campaign.

On Monday, volunteers spent hours sorting and packing supplies from community donations.

Local businesses also got in on the action, with places like TSYS surpassing their goal of collecting 1,200 backpacks, bringing in more than double, or 2,400 packs. 

These back-to-school supplies will be delivered next week to schools across the Valley who have high poverty rates amongst their student bodies.
