“Stuff the Bus” School Supplies Fund

A collaboration between local organizations, student service organizations and businesses, this annual event supports those students in our community who cannot afford to buy school supplies. Volunteers help collect donations of school supplies as well as monetary donations to purchase school supplies. Students who need assistance are then invited on a “shopping spree” to pick out a backpack and school supplies from the distribution center.
