A huge success. Phenomenal. Fantastic job. Woof! Woof!

These are just a few of the terms used to describe the success of the "Stuff the Bus" campaign sponsored by KURY radio and Chetco Federal Credit Union (CFCU), with Dollar Dog's support.

The second annual campaign to gather school supplies for children attending Brookings schools this year began Aug. 11.

Donated money collected – $2,425.79 – is earmarked to go in a special fund, used for future school supplies.

In addition, The Dollar Dog Summer Splash brought Brookings City Pool $1,000 for items needed for swimming lessons.

Donations of school supplies, including 120 backpacks, filled seven cafeteria-sized tables, according to Gaylin Beckley, manager of the Brookings branch of CFCU.

The supplies were divided between schools in the Brookings Harbor School District. They will be given to students that may otherwise go without items needed for school.
