CORPUS CHRISTI - Christus Spohn Health Care are going the extra mile to help make sure that every student in this area have the supplies they need to start the new school year. They kicked off their "Stuff a Bus" campaign today.
Fellow employees and hospital visitors are asked to donate enough school supplies to fill up a bus. If you missed the chance to help today, don't worry, the bus will be outside Spohn Memorial on Tuesday from noon to 2; or outside Spohn South on Wednesday afternoon.
It'll be a week or two, before we have the final results of our Operation Supply Our Students drive last week at the H-E-B Plus! So far, you've donated nearly $12,000 in cash, plus more than $3,000 worth of in-kind donations.
The contributions from made to Frost Bank, Spohn Health Care and First Community Bank still have to be tallied.
We have a lot of students to help - and there's still time. If you'd like to make a donation on behalf of your business or company contact the United Way of the Coastal Bend at 361-882-2529.
You can also make a contribution online at www.uwcb.org.
