“Fill the Bus” scores school tools

By George Garza The Vidorian


The “Fill the Bus” School Supply Collection Drive held this past weekend appears to be an unqualified success.

Thanks to the generosity of wonderful people of Vidor, the yellow school bus parked at Walmart on Saturday was filled to the ceiling with donated school supplies for all seven of Vidor’s schools. “We had the bus’s seats full of school supplies,”

said Sally Andrews, a school district spokesperson.

“They were overflowing and nearly to the roof. This was the best ‘Fill the Bus’ yet! We netted more than $3,500 in cash donations from local businesses; organizations and individual donors that will be used to purchase those needed items that were not donated.”
