You have two hands: One to support yourself and the second to help others.
Help local students start the school year off right!
Stuff the Bus engages 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.
The 2021 Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive distributed over 56,000 school supplies to 23 schools within the United Way of Southwest Minnesota service area. Those supplies assisted nearly 3,500 local K-12 students in southwest Minnesota.
