Don’t Miss the Bus School Supplies Drive (DMTB) is an annual initiative to support Hardin County students who struggle to acquire the items they need to start the school year off right.
Each July, DMTB partners place collection bins in various locations around Hardin County. Donors drop off school supplies throughout the month, ultimately aiming to fill an entire Hardin County school bus with supplies like backpacks, earbud headphones, pencils, notebooks and binders, among other items. On average, the drive raises enough items to help approximately 500 students start the school year with the tools they need to succeed. Supplies are divided among Hardin County, Elizabethtown and Fort Knox school systems.
