Every school year, over 900 Washington County school-aged children benefit from Children in Need's continual supply of clothing, hygiene items, school essentials and more. Fill the Bus is a community partnership that involves Wal-Mart of Hagerstown (both locations), Washington County Public Schools, Children in Need and United Way of Washington County, MD. Fill the bus is historically a 2-day event that aides Children In Need with the collection of school supplies and the children in our community who need and rely on our support, the most.
On Friday August 16th we will be at the "old" Walmart on Garland Groh Blvd from 9a-7p. On Saturday August 17th, we will be at the "new" Walmart on WalMart Drive from 9a-7p. We still need volunteers to assist with distributing lists to customers and to help us FILL THE BUS! We will also need volunteer help from 7p-9p on Saturday August 17th to deliver all supplies collected back to Children in Need. Please contact Allison if you'd like to volunteer to help with Fill the Bus! Join the event on facebook.

New this year, 2019, we will be hosting an open house for Washington Count Teachers, on August 26th and 27th at Children in Need, from 10am - 6pm. This is an opportunity for us to help supply our teachers with the essentials and supplies they need the most. We LOVE and appreciate our teachers! Join the facebook event!
Every year, we are asked what do you have the most need for. The list below identifies the most common and universal supplies that can be used by all students. We will also accept monetary donations to use toward the purchase of supplies in bulk.
