Saturday, August 5th, the Written in Red Foundation, along with Changing Lives Coalition, Eddy County United Way, and Faith Baptist Student Ministries held our annual Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive at Tate Branch Artesia. We identified 373 students throughout the Artesia, Cloudcroft, Lake Arthur, and Hagerman school districts that would need school supplies for the upcoming school year.


Students in Artesia were sent an invitation flyer the last week of school to attend the event on August 5 to pick out their backpack and supplies. We boxed up the supplies for identified students from the out-of-town districts.


We were blessed to help not only the 373 identified students but 101 more students who came to our event to pick up school supplies! Thanks to our many donors and volunteers, we were able to help 474 students start their first day of school with a new backpack and supplies!
