          The United Way and the Hamilton County PTA invited people to stuff the bus Sunday at the First Tennessee Pavilion.
          The 5th annual event was part of Live United Day at the Chattanooga Market.  People were able to come out and donate school supplies for the Teacher Supply Depot.  It allows teachers to supply students with free school supplies without having to pay for them out of pocket.
          This year, the event collected more than 25 thousand dollars in donations.
          "The basics, pencils, pens, notebooks, even copy paper. I mean there are a lot of supplies. If you want a complete list, you can go to the United Way website, download one there. There's probably 50 things on the list you could supply," says Wayne Collins, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for the Chattanooga United Way.
          The "Stuff the Bus" drive ends on October 31st and the United Way hopes to collect 50 thousand dollars in needed school supplies.
