A bright yellow school bus sat parked in front of Kroger on Saturday, greeting curious shoppers as they emerged for their weekend grocery hauls. For the second year in a row, Kroger has been the perfect spot for the ‘Stuff the Bus’ campaign, according to Dawson County Family Connection Coordinator Nancy Stites. Family Connection has been collecting school supplies for children in Dawson County in need for over a decade, each year building upon the next, but the ‘Stuff the Bus’ campaign has been particularly successful at the new Kroger location. “It certainly seems more festive this year,” Stites said as she pointed to decorative balloons donated by Kroger.
