Pack The Bus School Supply Drive

pack the bus"Pack The Bus" is a community-wide school supply drive that provides school supplies for every Marshall ISD student in grades Pre-K through 5. "Pack The Bus" will allow every student in Marshall ISD PK-5 to have their full school supply list available -- for free -- when they report to school in August.

it is estimated that a full school supply list for an elementary student can cost a family upwards of $100 or more per student. The ultimate goal with Pack The Bus is to help share this cost with each other while also providing our students with as much support in the classroom as possible for their learning experience.

Beginning in the spring, "Pack The Bus" will culminate with an ingathering time approximately late July-early August, at which time MISD will drive a school bus (or two, or three...) around town to pick-up locations and "pack the bus" with donations of school supplies. 

Churches, businesses, organizations, etc., that collect school supplies will be part of the route and will be able to load the bus with their donations. The goal is to provide full school supplies for every single MISD elementary school student for the start of the 2019-2020 school year.

Private donations may also be made to Marshall ISD at the Administration Building located at 305 E. Pinecrest Drive. Monetary donations will also be received by the district, which will then purchase the school supplies with every single donation provided for that cause.

Groups participating can reserve a certain item for a certain grade level, may take a grade of school supplies, or can simply provide whatever they can to help with the supply drive. The goal is to simply have all of our elementary students' school supplies provided for them, free of charge, on the first day of school in August.

So help us Pack the Bus for our Marshall kids!

If you or your group or organization would like to help with the Pack The Bus school supply drive, contact David Weaver, MISD Director of Communications, at 903-927-8727.
