Stuff the Bus

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. In 2017, we provided 62,181 school supplies to more than 4,000 students attending 26 area schools.
