Thank you Walnut Creek Chamber & Community Members for the Success of the
Stuff The Bus Donation Drive
Every child deserves the opportunity to excel in school, but unfortunately, not every student has the proper supplies that will help them achieve their academic goals.The AD16 Stuff the Bus Donation Drive was a huge success. Thanks to all of you who helped to stuff the Chamber bin. Together we collected a trove of school supplies for children in our Mt. Diablo Unified School District.
