Q-99's 'Pack The Bus' Enjoying Another Successful Year


Roanoke Co., VA - Q-99 is once again asking for people to help "Pack the Bus" as the school year approaches.

The 14th annual event is collecting items and money at various locations around the area this week.

Wednesday they made four stops including visits in Lynchburg, Roanoke, Bedford and at the Bonsack.

More than a dozen districts benefit from the drive.

There are still stops planned for Covington, Lexington, Rocky Mount and Pearisburg.

Those coming to help tell us it's an easy decision when chipping in for education.

"My daughter goes to Botetourt County Schools and I believe in giving to the area so I decided just to come by here and do it," said Melissa Atkinson who stopped by to make a donation.

So far the effort has raised more than $12,000 worth of funds and supplies with four stops to go before it ends on Friday.
