Rotary with the help of Staples “Stuffs the Bus”

By Sharon Hunt

When the Tenaya Parent Club announced their Fifth Annual “Stuff the Bus” Campaign the Groveland Rotary took up the challenge. With $250 from the Rotary President’s fund and another $250 from passing the hat, Rudy Manzo, our Past President, headed for Staples. Darren, the Manager, loaded case after case on a moving pallet,  pencils, binder paper, crayons, glue sticks, colored pencils, markers, binders, dry erase markers, pocket folders, white glue, highlighters and copy paper for the teachers. When the final receipt was recorded, Rotary wrote a check for $500. The actual Staples retail bill was $1500. Yes, it was a great day with smiles and laughter and tears of joy. Wynette Hilton, the Principal of Tenaya Elementary School, was more than thrilled when Rotary unloaded their gifts. It goes without saying that we will be forever grateful for the generosity of Staples!
