JA to ‘Stuff The Bus’

By FLOYD INGRAM / THE PRESS REGISTER,

 

The Junior Auxiliary of Clarksdale need your help to “Stuff The Bus.”

Junior Auxiliary of Clarksdale is working to get students in Coahoma and Quitman County get ready for the 2020-21 and they need the community’s help.

“Stuff The Bus” is a program designed to allow caring individuals to donate school items to be given to students in need of helping hand in getting ready for the start of school and during the school year ahead.

“Stuff The Bus” donations can be made anytime in July at drop-off stations at Planters Bank and First National Bank of Clarksdale. Drop off spots are also located at Thomas E. Clayton, CPA in Marks.

JA members will be outside of Wal-Mart in Clarksdale on Aug. 7 and 8 to receive supplies and donations from shoppers as well.

Junior Auxiliary members work tirelessly throughout the year on a variety of projects that focus on local children and families in need of assistance.

The JA slogan is “Care Today – Character Tomorrow” and when teamed with the current focus of the Association, Junior Auxiliary Chapters are working more than ever before to increase awareness of child health and welfare and how it affects their futures.

Junior Auxiliary of Clarksdale is a part of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries (NAJA), a non-profit organization founded in 1941. NAJA has more than 13,500 active, associate and life members in 101 chapters in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas.
