5th Annual "Stuff the Bus"
August 17th - 18th, 2012
Office: Fundraiser/Volunteer Opportunity
Location: K-Mart - Petoskey/Charlevoix ServPro - Gaylord/Cheboygan
Two local United Ways will host the 5th Annual ‘Stuff the Bus’ event on Saturday, Aug. 18, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Char-Em United Way will have a school bus at each of the K-Mart Plazas in Petoskey and Charlevoix and Otsego United Way, who is teaming up with ServPro of Gaylord & Cheboygan, will have buses at K-Mart, Wal-Mart, and Glen’s in Gaylord. Cheboygan United Way will also be holding a “Stuff the Bus” event at the K-Mart Plaza in Cheboygan on Friday, August 17.
Extra expenses for school are difficult for many families due to the current economy. Area United Ways are asking our communities to collect and donate school supplies for our local children. “We want to make sure that every child has the supplies they need to succeed in school,” said Lisa Luebke of Char-Em United Way. “Cuts in school budgets and the struggling economy have left many local kids and schools in need of the basics like crayons, pencils, paper and scissors.”
To make it easy for people to give, select businesses throughout Charlevoix, Emmet, Otsego and Cheboygan Counties will have drop-boxes available from August 1st through the 20th.  As an extra incentive, Char-Em United Way will have a raffle drawing for those dropping off donations. The grand prize will be two tickets to Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark (one prize for Petoskey K-Mart and one for Charlevoix K-Mart locations.)
Shoppers can get a list of suggested school supplies and drop box locations by going to United Way’s website at www.charemunitedway.org or www.otsegounitedway.org. The distribution of school supplies to students in need will be coordinated with each United Way’s local school districts.
Char-Em United Way is also excited to launch their participation in the nationally acclaimed, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library as part of their Education Initiative. Information on the program and registration will be available at Petoskey and Charlevoix K-Mart locations during Stuff the Bus.
To volunteer for the event, contact Casey or Lisa at 487-1006 or info@charemunitedway.org in Char-Em or Carol at 989-705-8584 in Otsego County.  

Each United Way is also accepting monetary donations to purchase school supplies for students in need. Donations should be mailed to Char-Em United Way, PO Box 1701, Petoskey, MI 49770, or Otsego County United Way, 116 E. Fifth St., Gaylord, MI 49735 with Stuff the Bus noted, or use one of the donation boxes available at each event

Benefit duck race to be held on new whitewater park
Join a rollicking race on Michigan's newest whitewater park on the Bear River in Petoskey.  Buy a rubber duck (not to keep) for $10, or 3 for $25. You will be assigned a number and the fun begins!
The race will be held rain or shine on Saturday, August 18th, 2012 at 4 p.m. at Petoskey Waterfront's Mineral Well Park on Lake St during the Festival on the Bay. Need not be present to win. First place $300, second place $200 and third place $100. 
The race benefits the 8th grade class of St. Francis Xavier Grade School in Petoskey. “In addition to a rigorous academic schedule, these kids have been doing charitable acts for nearly ten years, including kindergarten” says coordinator Sue Levitte. “At the end of their 8th grade year, they celebrate together with a class trip.” They have been working hard at car washes, will be parking cars during sidewalk sales and are organizing this race in conjunction with those efforts. Our hope is that the community will show support of their efforts all these years, by participating in this fun event and purchasing some ducks from them.”
