Stuff the Bus school supply event in Columbia

Posted: Updated:

Morgantown Church of God in Marion County is hosting a "Stuff the Bus" event in Columbia's Friendship Park.

The July 2nd event will feature live music from local Christian groups as well as local choirs. There will be plenty of festivities, food, and fun for folks of all ages. Pastor Cory Odom says the church has put on the event before, but wanted to expand it to Columbia so both the city and county schools could receive donations. Odom says they're looking for basic schools supplies such as pencils, erasers, backpacks, and things of that nature. Odom says, "One thing we noticed was that this was a major need and we wanted to expand it this year and bring it to the city because that's our theme, a church for the city. We noticed that there was a need abroad. We're just asking for people to come out and support this wonderful day."

The stuff the bus event will take place on July 20th in Columbia's Friendship Park from 10 am to 4pm. If people choose to make monetary donations, those will go toward the purchase of school supplies to be passed out.
