FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM)- The United Way “Fill The Bus” campaign kicks off Friday (July 24) across the region. Join Channel 5 and BIC for Fill the Bus 2015, and give back to local children with The United Way of Northwest Arkansas and The United Way of Fort Smith Area! Fill the Bus is an initiative that helps to create a pathway out of poverty for children in our area. This program supports children in our community by helping them start school with confidence and giving them the literal tools they need to succeed. Your donation will provide needy children with new school supplies to assist them with their studies. All supplies will stay local!
