With the 2019-20 school year rapidly approaching, multiple organizations are offering help to local families and schools that may be struggling to provide their child/children with necessary supplies.
Here are some of the supply giveaways in the area we were able to find:

Additionally, if you are wanting to donate to the cause, the Cheatham County School District will host its second annual “Stuff the Bus” on Saturday, July 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to provide local schools with needed supplies.
Buses will be parked at six locations across the county for the community to drop off school supplies: Walmart in Ashland City, Dollar General in Kingston Springs, Dollar General in Pegram, Dollar General Market in Pleasant View, Dollar General on Bearwallow Road (East Cheatham), Dollar General on Neptune Road and Highway 12 North (West Cheatham).
If you are interested in helping, the district is asking that you purchase school supplies and bring them to the bus on this date. Team members will be on site to collect donated supplies and "stuff" them on the bus.
