MONMOUTH — Monmouth Middle School students will hold their annual Stuff the Bus campaign from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Cumston Hall.

Students will collect donations of nonperishable food items. All items collected will be donated to the Cottrell-Taylor Christmas Fund, the Monmouth Academy Food Bank and the Vestry Food Bank. The Cottrell-Taylor Christmas Basket Fund began more than 40 years ago in memory of former Monmouth principal, Henry L. Cottrell and Robert Taylor, a Monmouth teacher, according to a news release from Monmouth Middle School.

Items needed include canned fruit and vegetables, dried pasta, stuffing mix, quick bread and cookie mixes, canned soup, macaroni and cheese, brownie mixes, gravy mixes and more. Last year, the middle school collected more than 2,300 items and cash donations, which helped more than 60 families. For more information, call 933-9002.
