United Way of Northwest Louisiana’s Fill the Bus School Supply Drive is BACK! We are encouraging Northwest Louisiana communities to shop at participating Walmart Supercenters at select dates and times to purchase and donate school supplies for local students. This initiative benefits more than 4,000 elementary, middle, and high school students in Bossier and Caddo Parish and provides them with the basic tools needed for success throughout the school year!
