GRAND PRAIRIE – Purchase and drop off an extra shirt, pant, backpack or school supply Aug. 1-15, 2013, at one of the donation barrels located inside participating stores at Grand Prairie Premium Outlets to help ensure that children in Grand Prairie Independent School District will be prepared for school.

Grand Prairie Premium Outlets is conveniently located off Interstate 20 at Great Southwest Parkway. Stuff the Bus is a partnership between the City of Grand Prairie, GPISD and Grand Prairie Premium Outlets.
