Montgomery County, TN – The Montgomery County Adult Probation Department and Recovery Court’s latest volunteer endeavor was assisting with Clarksville-Montgomery County Education Foundation’s Stuff the Bus event.
Three Adult Probation and Recovery Court employees and nine program participants worked with other volunteers to partner with the Education Foundation to collect school supplies for the Teacher Warehouse to equip teachers with free classroom supplies on Saturday, July 27th. Several participants also helped unstuff the bus on Monday, July 29th.
Participants in the Recovery Court Program are required to do community service hours as a part of their agenda.
“We always seek to volunteer and do community service hours based on the impact we can have in the community with non-profit organizations. Stuff the Bus has been a perfect annual project for us. Not only does participating in this type of activity make a difference for the organization we are serving, it also makes a difference for our program’s participants, some who contribute more than the required hours because they discover they enjoy volunteering,” said Adult Probation & Recovery Court Director Sherry Robertson.
Adult Probation and Recovery Court employees and program participants worked varying shifts to Stuff the Bus on Saturday, July 27th at the Fort Campbell and Wilma Rudolph Walmart stores from 10:00am to 5:00pm and on Monday, July 29th volunteers worked to unstuffed the bus from 10:00am to 1:00pm.
This past June, the entire Adult Probation and Recovery Court employee team also supported Prepped for Success by helping to stuff 10,000 bags with school supplies. In May, staff and program participants loaded Vidalia Onions to support the annual Civitan Fundraiser as they do every year.
