'Park it on the Market' aims to fill entire bus with school supplies for Roanoke students in need

ROANOKE, Va. - A brand new event aims to help Roanoke city school children.

A school bus was parked in downtown Roanoke with the goal to fill the entire bus with donated school supplies for local students in need. 

Many people and businesses had already stopped by Market Square Friday morning to donate, dropping off backpacks, crayons and other items.

The drive lasts until 5 p.m. Friday.

ALCOVA, a locally-based mortgage company, hopes to make this an annual event.

“It’s absolutely important. I have kids of my own and we know that kids are only able to learn when they’re well-fed and when they have all their supplies that they need,” said Vice President of Marketing Kim Bratic.

Downtown Roanoke Inc also helped out.

Roanoke City Schools will give the supplies to students at an event called Back-to-School Extravaganza. It will be on Aug. 17 at William Fleming High School from 9 a.m. to noon.
