FAIRFIELD — A campaign by various local agencies and groups is under way to help homeless children get school supplies for a new school year.
Solano County has about 1,400 homeless schoolchildren, according to the Solano County Office of Education. They might live in shelters or move from home to home or even sleep on the streets.
The “Stuff the Bus” campaign seeks donations of various supplies. Items requested include alarm clocks, backpacks in colors besides solid blue or red, pencils, erasers, paper, crayons, glue sticks, pencil sharpeners, flash cards, pencil pouches, rulers and calculators.
