WHO: WINK FM, WINK TV and Lee County Public Schools

WHAT: 2011/2012 Stuff the Bus Event

WHERE: In front of the Target Super-Store, 13711 S. Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers (corner of US 41 and Daniels Parkway)

WHEN: 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. Saturday, August 13th

WHY: WINK FM and WINK TV are once again teaming up with Lee County Public Schools for a school supply donation event. The goal is to help families in need this school year.

Shoppers can donate school supplies, which will be “stuffed” into a school bus that will be parked in front of the Staples store all day Saturday, August 13th.

Items needed include: notebooks, pencils, pens, loose-leaf paper, crayons, color markers – all of the “traditional” items students need as they head back to school.

While the 2011/2012 school year has already started, the Florida Tax-Free weekend is coming up, which is why the Stuff the Bus event is scheduled for Saturday, August 13th. Families can take advantage of the tax-free weekend when helping out those in need across our community.
