(Bedford, VA): Bedford County Public School, in collaboration with Bedford County Department of Social
Services and Bedford Walmart are gathering school supplies for students in need for the upcoming
school year. We need help to “Pack the Bus” on Friday, August 4, 2023 at Bedford Walmart from
12:00pm – 6:00pm.
We would like to invite community members and partners to participate in collecting school supply
donations as well. Students being prepared for the start of a school year enhances the school
experience, which is a primary focus of BCPS and without our community and partners this would not be
There are many different ways that an organization can support BCPS and our students. A donation box
can be placed at your organization or company, a monetary donation could be made or come out to help
on the big day! Also, if you know of a family in need, they can pick up a form from Bedford County
Department of Social Services or call them for assistance.
We really appreciate your interest in helping our students prepare for a new school year and hope we
can count on your support to make this event a success.
