Annual “Stuff the Bus” School Supply Drive in Franklin County Seeks Sponsors

Franklin County is gearing up for its “Stuff the Bus” Annual School Supply Drive, scheduled to run from July 15 to July 31. The initiative, which supports students across all five school districts in the county, relies on community contributions of school supplies to ensure that every child is equipped for the upcoming school year.

To enhance the outreach and impact of this county-wide effort, the organizers are seeking sponsors to cover essential costs such as printing and advertising, which are crucial for extending promotional efforts. Sponsorships also help support the administrative work involved in orchestrating this expansive drive.

Prospective sponsors are encouraged to formalize their partnership by completing the sponsorship form available at the United Way of Franklin County’s website. The deadline for sponsorship commitments is set for June 21.

For more details on how to become a sponsor and to access the sponsorship form, please visit […/daa143…]. Join us in making a significant difference in the lives of Franklin County students through your support of the “Stuff the Bus” initiative.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
