Starting Thursday (8/24) and running through the end of the month, you can find Lamers’ Little Yellow Bus at Peace Lutheran Church. Help end the campaign on a strong note by dropping off NEW donations of some of the top needed supplies, like 8ct regular washable markers, 3-ring zippered pencil bags, and solid colored folders! Together, we can ensure every student in Waunakee has the necessary supplies for a successful school year!
For her 10th birthday party, WNC friend Ava decided she didn’t want to ask for gifts for herself. Instead, Ava inspired us all by asking for donations for families in need. Thank you to Ava and her guests for making a difference in the lives of others, your selflessness is commendable!
With the month of August halfway gone, Fill the Bus has started strong – thank you to all who have contributed so far!
Help us fulfill all the school supply needs of over 200 Waunakee area students and drop off your new donations at the Lamers’ Little Yellow Bus or at WNC, or make a financial donation using our secure PayPal account link.
Last month, Peace Lutheran Church collected donations for WNC through Bags of Love, including paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, garbage bags, toiletries, postage stamps, gas cards, and other essential items that are often taken for granted. We are overwhelmed by their generosity and so grateful for their spirit of giving! Thank you to everyone at Peace Lutheran who participated with this amazing donation!
