Kris Phillips, Station Manager of local radio stations Newstalk 1240 WFOY and ESPN Radio 1420 WAOC reported to Historic City News that in conjunction with Ripleyâ€™s Entertainment, they are collecting much-needed school supplies for the cash-strapped St. Johns County School District.
The goal of the “Stuff The Bus” promotion is to fill an entire school bus with supplies for the district.
September 26th, the bus will be parked at the St. Augustine High School â€“ Pedro Menendez High School Football game. It will be parked in front of Ripleyâ€™s Believe it or Not Museum on Saturday, September 27th.
Any donations can be dropped off at the football game, at Ripleyâ€™s Believe it or Not Museum, or at the radio station studios located at 567 Lewis Point Road Extension.
If you prefer to make a cash donation, a representative from the radio stations will purchase the supplies.
More than a dozen local businesses have already made donations to this effort.
