"Cram the Cruiser" & "Stuff the Bus" school supply drives are planned

As students prepare to go back to school amid change and uncertainty due to restrictions and requirements in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, one thing they shouldn’t have to worry about is being able to obtain school supplies. This is why Butler County Family Resource and Youth Service Centers, the Morgantown Mission, and the Kentucky State Police are partnering to “Cram the Cruiser.” 

On Friday, August 7th, these organizations will be collecting donations of school supplies at the Dollar General Market in Morgantown from 10:00 am to 4:00 p.m. 

Volunteers from Butler County Schools will be on hand to assist organizers in facilitating the event. All involved will be adhering to social distancing and other safety procedures in order to keep those who donate safe.  

Melissa Glass, Butler County Family Resource Center Coordinator, states that “summer supply drives are vital to providing the school supply inventory needed by students and staff year round, wherever they may be learning.” She thanks the community for always being willing to help and reminds readers, “If your community organization or church would like to support the school supply drive please contact our centers for more information about the current needs for students and families.” 

Butler County kids also benefit greatly from the long standing partnership and support of the Stuff the Bus Foundation.  Now, financial donations can be made now at the Morgantown IGA. 100% of the money donated to the Stuff the Bus  will benefit the Butler County Family Resource (grades K-5) and Youth Services Center (grades 6-12) to purchase school supplies.  

Interested persons are encouraged to help out by donating to one or both of these worthwhile endeavors. For more information, you can contact Melissa Glass at or 270-999-2686.
