WPXI 11 Cares Teams Help to Pack the Bus!

The 2022 WPXI 11 Cares Pack the Bus 

Saturday, August 27, 2022

10 am to 3 pm

It’s time to grab your school supply list and get ready to go back to school. But, did you know that 1 in 3 students in Southwestern PA do not have the school supplies they need for the start of the school year? That is why we need your help to PACK THE BUS! Donate new and gently used backpacks and school supplies during The 2022 WPXI II Cares Pack the Bus event. We will be onsite at five Staples locations throughout the Greater Pittsburgh region on Saturday, August 27, from 10 am to 3 pm.

All students deserve to feel confident, prepared, and ready for success on the first day of school. Don’t let a lack of supplies get in their way.
