Anyone who pulled into the Kroger this weekend saw what has become a familiar sight in Dawson County during back-to-school season — a big yellow school bus sitting out front. Dawson County Family Connection collected donations for their annual Stuff the Bus fundraising campaign on July 20. The 2019 campaign was a major success. According to Family Connection coordinator Nancy Stites, “over 300 bookbags” stuffed with school supplies will be given out at the start of the school year.
