Moore Chamber to “Fill the Bus” during its annual School Supply Drive in July

Chamber

The Moore Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual school supply drive “Fill the Bus” this summer for its fifth year, which helps Moore Public Schools teachers offset personal costs of school supplies throughout the year.

The drive kicks off on Friday, July 15, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Walmart Supercenter at 501 SW 19th Street in Moore. A MPS school bus will be sitting at the front of the parking lot where shoppers may drop off donations for the drive. Additional drop off dates are Friday, July 22 and 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and then concluding at National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 2, at the Warren Theater parking lot from 6 to 9 p.m. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

In addition to the drop-off site, area businesses are encouraged to host their own Fill the Bus drives to raise supplies and/or funds for the program.

In mid-August before school begins, volunteers will purchase additional supplies with the monetary donations, sort the supplies, and then deliver them to Moore schools. Last year the program raised a value of $6,700 in supplies that was donated to 20 Moore schools including 10 elementary schools, all six junior high schools, all three senior high schools, and Vista Academy.

“The program continues to grow each year and it is remarkable to see our community come together to help out our schools, which we know is especially needed right now with inflation costs,” said Kim Brown, president/CEO of the Moore Chamber of Commerce. “We are proud of how this program has evolved and we look forward to making 2022 the most successful drive yet.”
