Cleveland, OH – July 11, 2012 — The Centric Cleveland team donated shoes, clothes, school supplies or cash to benefit the 7th Annual Stuff the Bus for Cleveland Kids event.

For the seventh year, Stuff the Bus annually donates shoes, clothing, school supplies and fundraises for Greater Cleveland’s children during the back to school season. This year, Shoes and Clothes for Kids (SC4K) and Dominion partnered with the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to provide the “Zoo Bus.”

People were encouraged to come out and “Stuff the Bus” with new shoes, clothing and school supplies. All items collected had to be NEW.

“I had the pleasure of dropping off all of the donations this evening at the Cleveland Zoo and the volunteers were genuinely excited and thankful for our donation, said Matt Dierker, a Centric Cleveland vice president. “I felt like Santa Claus when I opened my trunk to unload bags of donations. The volunteers were so grateful that I got hugs from at least five people!

Manager Dan Valerian led Centric Cleveland’s participation in this event.
