It’s called “Pack the Bus”, now in its 12th year. Q99 sets up shop in WalMart lots along with a school bus. They ask you to donate school supplies, donations go straight onto a school bus from that locality’s school system. The schools then determine which children are most deserving and in need of the donated supplies. “Pack the Bus” has collected more than $400,000 in school supplies in its first 11 years.
