KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Knox Area Rescue Ministries wants to help homeless and needy children get the school supplies they need going into the school year. So, once again, they've teamed up with WIVK-FM, Walmart, and Gentry Trailways to "Stuff the Bus!

On Wednesday, they parked a school bus in front of the Turkey Creek Walmart, 10900 Parkside Drive, and are asking people to help pack it with the supplies kids need. (check out the list in the sidebar)

The bus will be parked there until 6:00 p.m. Wednesday night and WIVK's on air personalities will be on hand too, broadcasting from the parking lot.
