Zia Country and STS of New Mexico are partnering this year to STUFF THE BUS for Las Cruces Public Schools. Bravo Mic Communications’ family of radio stations and Las Cruces Public Schools coordinate the donation and distribution of new school supplies to students from low-income families. Children on local elementary, middle school, and high school’s Free and Reduced Lunch Programs, and children of low-income families throughout the Las Cruces Public School District receive the supplies to better prepare them for academic success. Items are collected by participating organizations and community members.
Children who receive supplies through this program have the tools they need to begin the school year ready to learn. For struggling parents, providing the necessary school supplies can be a financial hardship. When their children receive school supplies through this program, parents are better able to utilize their limited financial resources to pay for basic needs such as food, utilities, rent, etc. In addition, children have greater self-esteem when they have the school supplies they need, and the same school supplies as their peers. You can drop off your donations at our studios located at 101 Perkins Dr during normal business hours.
TO APPLY FOR FREE SCHOOL SUPPLIES, YOU MUST CONTACT THE ADMINISTRATION/COUNSELOR OF YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL DIRECTLY- find the resources you need at http://www.lcps.net/

#2 pencils & sharpeners
