Tomorrow is the day that Merrill Gardens-Admiral Heights (WSB sponsor) residents are asking your help to “stuff the bus” with items for the people at the Nickelsville encampment – who range in age from kids through seniors. Active Living director Nichole says some donations have been received but nowhere near enough to stuff the bus, and you’re welcome to drop things off today as well as tomorrow during the actual event 10 am-4 pm.
