The Clarkston Community Schools Transportation Department's 17th annual Stuff-A-Bus is coming up this weekend, Dec. 14-15.
"We want to give back to the community we care so much for," said Tina Fay, driver. "Please come out and help a great cause."

Buses will be out from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday at Neiman's Market on Dixie Highway at White Lake Road; and Kroger at Sashabaw and Maybee roads.
The drivers aim to fill the buses as much as they can. All donations will be delivered to Lighthouse North on Monday morning.
