The Galion-Crestline Area Chamber of Commerce is doing a donation drive called “Stuff the Bus.” Several Galion businesses have partnered with it to be drop-off sites, including the City of Galion. Yellow collection boxes are at the City Building, Fire Department, and Utility Office.
You can bring new school supplies to donate at any participating business or the Chamber office, 138 Harding Way West. A final collection drive will be held during the next Third Friday event on Aug. 18. Collected materials will be given to the school district that evening, to be distributed to students in need of supplies.
