Prattville, AL – The Autauga Education Foundation (AEF), in partnership with the Autauga County Board of Education, Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce, and Prattville Walmart, hosted a Stuff the Bus campaign during Alabama’s Tax-Free Weekend, Friday, July 21-Saturday, July 22.
The Foundation and their partners encouraged Autauga County residents and businesses to take part in collecting school supplies to provide relief to the administration, educators, and students in our community.
On Friday, the bus was located at the Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce for local businesses to drop off items. The Chamber challenged local members to get out and “Stuff the Bus”. Thank you to Alabama Power, ASE Credit Union, Century 21 Southern Star’s Cathee Gipson, Copeland Security Group, First Community Bank, Gipson’s Tire Pros, Glynwood Dental, Hancock Bank, Robin and David Davies with Realty Connection, and Troy University Montgomery Campus for their commitment to education in our community.
On Saturday, the bus was relocated to the Prattville Walmart where individuals in the community, like Ms. Patricia Smith and her daughter, purchased extra supplies to contribute to our efforts. In addition, new collection partnerships were formed with First United Methodist Church of Prattville and Trinity United Methodist Church to make a greater impact in our community.
Because of this support, we were able to double our efforts from last year, distributing more items to all 14 campuses of the Autauga County School System!
Your support is an investment in our county’s schools and the future of our children.
