DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) -The Salvation Army and all Walmart stores in the Quad Cities have teamed up for the Stuff the Bus back-to-school supplies campaign to be held this weekend, Aug. 5-7, according to a news release.

This annual community campaign will help ease the financial burden parents are experiencing as a new school year begins and will help ensure area children are equipped and ready.

Local Walmart stores will have Stuff the Bus collection bins placed inside for shoppers to drop off school supplies. A list of suggested supplies will be posted next to each collection bin.

Donations may also be dropped off during business hours at Salvation Army office locations at 100 Kirkwood Avenue, Davenport, or 2200 5th Avenue, Moline.
