Walmart and The Salvation Army are joining forces to provide new school supplies to Marathon County students in need during the Stuff the Bus campaign event on Aug. 3 at both Wausau and Marshfield Walmart locations.

Part of a nationwide effort, the Stuff the Bus campaign in Wausau and Marshfield are two of nearly 3,000 similar events taking place at Walmart stores across the county. To participate, shoppers:

  • Check in-store supply lists for needed supplies
  • Purchase the supplies
  • Drop them off in The Salvation Army collection bins at the front of each store.

The Salvation Army will be on-site Aug. 3, with bins remaining in stores for a limited time.

Those unable to make it to the store can participate by using the online registry:
