COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) – The community came together for a Stuff-A-Bus School Supply Drive on Saturday.
The event was hosted by City Councilman Ed McDowell and Richland County Councilman Derrek Pugh.
Dozens showed up to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park for free school supplies, food, and even shoes.
A representative from one of the event sponsors, Omega Men of Columbia said it's important to support the youth as they head back to school.
“In order to be a good Samaritan, we make sure that we bring them in close and we make sure that we celebrate our education,” said Doyle Covert.
