Fill the Bus
For 26 consecutive years, iHeart Media, along with community businesses and individual donors, have partnered with Bismarck Public Schools to assist students in need with an event called Fill the Bus. On August 17th from 6am-6pm, iHeart Media will be broadcasting from both the North and South Red Carpet Carwash locations. Community members are encouraged to come and “Fill the Bus” with supplies that students need to be prepared for the 2022/2023 school year.
The supplies requested are as follows (in order of need):
- – Backpacks (youth and adult with computer liner)

- – Folders and Binder Dividers (both with pockets)
- – Notebooks (Composition, Wide-ruled & College ruled)
- – Rulers

Supplies collected will go to students in need within Bismarck, Mandan and surrounding areas. 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.
