Brightening some days

 (08/01/2014, SPRING HILL) Deltona Elementary School 3rd-grade teacher Jennifer Wagner, center, and Morton Elementary School kindergarten teacher Jamie Simon share a laugh with Charles Sharp, seen at far right, as Sharp hands a bag of school supplies to the teachers Friday afternoon, August 1, 2014. The teachers were volunteering for the United Way of Hernando County's "Stuff the Bus" school supplies drive outside of the Publix grocery store located in the Shoppes of Avalon shopping center on County Line Road in Spring Hill. The supply drive will last throughout the weekend, and has volunteers posted outside of Wal-Mart, Publix, and Walgreens stores throughout the area. Sharp, visiting from Auburn, Ala. with his wife Joanne (not pictured), was in the Spring Hill area looking to buy a home in order to relocate to Florida. "When we had our kids in school, there were times when it was tough so we know how it can be for some families," Sharp said. "So it feels good to help out now that we're in a position to lend a hand." PHOTO BY: STEPHEN J. CODDINGTON | FOR THE TIMES DESCRIPTION: The United Way of Hernando County is conducting its annual Stuff the Bus school supplies drive Friday through Sunday at local Publix, Walmart and Walgreens stores. Busiest locations probably are at Publix and Walmart. Any of the stores is OK. Can check with Konrad for a list of locations. Looking for daily stand-alone art for Saturday's 4-star Metro section.
