LAMONT, Calif. - Many Lamont students will be able to come back to school with all the tools that they need to succeed.
Assembly Member Rudy Salas hosted a school supply drive today called, "Stuff the Bus." He, along with local students, collected notebooks, backpacks and pencils for students in need.
"Collecting School supplies for these students means the world to them. When you talk to the parents and you talk to the kids; they're just so happy to get a new backpack," said Salas.
