Fill the Bus started in 1997. It has grown from one bus at Kirkwood Mall to two buses at both Red Carpet Car Washes in Bismarck. The project, jointly sponsored by Y93-FM and Bismarck Public Schools, donates new school supplies to students in need. Y93 broadcasts from the bus locations in late August and the supplies are distributed to counselors and social workers in Bismarck, Mandan, and the surrounding area. Parents who are in need of school supplies for their children should contact their children’s schools in mid-August with the grade levels of each child and when they can pick up the materials, which will typically be on the first day of school. If school supplies are also needed later in the school year, contact the school. For more information about the annual Fill the Bus event, call 701-323-4091 or click here to email our office.
