While there are still many details being worked out for the school year, the United Way of Eddy County is moving forward with its annual Stuff the Bus campaign. You can support this drive to provide supplies to local children by making a monetary donation through the United Way’s web page (www.uweddyco.org/2020STB), purchasing school supplies and dropping off at the United Way office at 116 S. Canyon, or purchasing school supplies directly through the United Way’s gift registry on their web page. For more information, please call (575) 887-3504. Thanks to Walmart and Mosaic for helping with this year’s Stuff the Bus effort. The Assistance League of Carlsbad is also helping children get dressed this year through Operation School Bell, and the United Way is helping the Assistance League with backpacks.
