Krispy Kreme and The Salvation Army “Stuff the Bus” to Benefit Central Florida Students

Annual School Supply Drive is underway now through August 7

The Central Florida Krispy Kreme locations are teaming up with The Salvation Army for the annual ‘Stuff the Bus’ campaign which looks to make this time of year sweeter for local families in need. This unique school supply drive helps local students gear up for a successful academic year by easing the high cost of materials.

“Krispy Kreme is honored to have the opportunity to help hundreds of students make a fun and easy transition back-to-school,” says Jenny Bellanca, vice president of operations for Florida Family Foods LLC, an authorized franchisee of Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation. “The timing is perfect as supporters can take advantage of Florida Tax Free Weekend on August 5 through7 to purchase donations.”
