The Walmart Supercenter in Epping will hold a "Stuff a Bus" drive on Saturday with help from Epping Boy Scouts and Fire Department Explorers.
People are encouraged to drop off backpacks, pencils, pens, notebooks, crayons and other items that children can use at school.
The goal is to fill a mini bus provided by Seacoast Learning Collaborative with supplies.
"With school supplies I imagine it will be a lot of smaller items," said Cliff Cray, a committee member who works with Epping Boy Scouts and also serves as an advisor for the Epping Fire Explorers.
"It seems like there are a lot of kids who don't have what they need to have when they start school. The school can only supply so much," Cray said.
"It's amazing the amount of stuff people will donate when they find out it's for a good cause," Cray said.
"Some of the teachers even take out of their own pockets to buy the items," Book said.
