SCIO – The Harrison County Collaborative Group met recently at the Scio American Legion to ready itself for the 2nd Annual Stuff the Bus Campaign. Organizers hail from the Scio, Cadiz, and Hopedale American Legion Posts, County offices such as WIC, DJFS, and Help Me Grow, and generous community volunteers. In its initial push last year, 260 children were able to have presents under their trees on Christmas morning.

Donations will be accepted for the program through December 2 by contacting any Harrison County Legion member or the Help Me Grow Office at 740-942-2622.  NH Photo/KATINA WATT
