Girl Scouts help to Stuff the Bus

Posted: Updated:

MT. VERNON -- Local Girl Scouts collected school supplies at Staples in Mt. Vernon as a part of United Way's Stuff the Bus school supply drive.

Members dressed in costumes as school supplies in order to draw attention as the drive collected hundreds of school supplies for people in need.

The scouts said it's important because this annual event makes an actual difference in people's lives.

"When you know someone's getting something that they really need, it just makes you feel good that you're actually helping someone," scout Sarah Odell said.

The Girl Scouts said it was hot under those costumes, but in the end it was worth it.

This year marked the 11th straight year of the Stuff the Bus drive.
