Businesses can join school supply drive
A nonprofit is asking local businesses to take part in its annual school supply drive.
Heart of West Michigan United Way’s annual Stuff the Bus drive takes place July 15-Aug. 6.
This year, items will be distributed to elementary and middle schools in Cedar Springs, Kenowa Hills, Godfrey-Lee, Grand Rapids and Sparta.
Each year, the drive provides thousands of supplies to schools in Kent County.

School supplies also can be dropped off from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and 8 a.m.-noon on Friday, at the United Way office, 118 Commerce Ave. SW in Grand Rapids.
