Stuff the Bus once again engaged dozens of volunteers to collect, sort, pack and distribute supplies and backpacks to elementary, middle and high school students. Stuff the Bus means that students can create and learn to their full potential without the worry that they don't have the basic tools needed to reach their academic goals. In 2018, we provided 67,003 school supplies to almost 4,000 students at 23 area schools.

NOTE:  All supplies collected have been delivered to schools throughout our service area for distribution by staff at the schools.  Families living in our service area that are in need of school supplies should contact their school district directly regarding how to access supplies, as each school district has their own process.
