To meet the need, The Salvation Army is working with Walmart to collect school supplies during the annual Stuff the Bus event from Friday, Aug. 6 to Sunday, Aug. 8. Shoppers will receive a list, and can purchase and drop off items at collection bins at the front of most Walmart stores throughout the greater Chicagoland area.
