Rep. Patty Hymanson, D-York, joined with Sanford teachers and community volunteers last month to get school supplies to students so they could start the new school year right as part of the annual “Stuff the Bus” project. Wanda Parent is the leader of this effort, which collects backpacks, pencils, markers, notebooks and other necessities for students who need them. The event was held at the Curtis Lake Church in Sanford. Last year “Stuff the Bus” provided an estimated 2,600 York County students with school supplies. Hymanson is third from the left and Wanda Parent is sixth from the right.
