Staff Council to Sponsor Stuff the Bus Collection at Sonic

The Texas A&M University-Texarkana Staff Council will collect donations for Stuff the Bus Saturday, Aug. 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Sonic Drive-In at 4706 7th Street in Texarkana, Arkansas.

“Community service and volunteerism are an investment in our community and the people who live in it,” said Terrica Kirk, a Staff Council member who serves on the United Way of Greater Texarkana Board of Directors.

“This year our project is to assist Stuff the Bus,” Kirk said. “Stuff the Bus is a United Way program making a difference in the greater Texarkana area.”

“We would love to see every one of you there at some point getting a Slush and making a donation,” Kirk said. “When children start the year with the school supplies they need, it gives them a better chance to focus on academics and become stronger students. These students are possibly the future of A&M-Texarkana.”

The Staff Council also has placed Stuff the Bus boxes next to campus elevators, Kirk said. Donations of school supplies and backpacks are accepted at the locations.

“We are asking you to help us fill those boxes completely,” said Kirk. “We want to show the community that A&M-Texarkana cares and surpass everyone’s expectations. Any school supplies and backpacks are appreciated.”

“Sometimes we never know when our neighbors may need help and those of us with children know how expensive those lists really can get. By teaming with Stuff the Bus, I think it gives us a chance to leave a more impactful mark locally that will also benefit us in the future. It is a win-win!”
