The annual Communities In Schools of Auburn Back to School Supply Drive has started and will continue through August.

New this year is the Stuff the Bus event at AuburnFest on Saturday, Aug. 12, in Les Gove Park, 910 Ninth St. SE, Auburn.

Arlene Pierini, CISA executive director, said the organization is hoping to help more than 1,500 students in need throughout the Auburn School District.

“The need is vast and includes all grade levels,” Pierini said. “Any and all traditional back to school supplies such as backpacks, colored pencils and binders are appreciated, she says.”
