Give Students in Need the Tools to Succeed!
What is Stuff the Bus?
Stuff the Bus eases the financial burden on families with school-aged children. Giving a student the required supplies promotes learning, encourages self-esteem, and helps kids stay in school. It’s more than just supplies…It’s the first step to prepare students for a fulfilling, successful future.
“Our goal is to send children who are living in poverty to school well-equipped for starting a new school year, giving them a leg up on on learning, one step on the ladder to educational success,” according to United Way Executive Director, Jane Browning.
You Can Set Children Up For Success
Join Stuff the Bus and help our kids start school equipped with the supplies they need to be ready to learn. It’s as simple as picking up an extra package of notebook paper, pencils, or other school supplies.
Grab a shopping list either on here or in person (the day of) and drop off supplies at one of our Wal-Mart locations. Last day to drop off supplies at a site is Thursday, August 3.
Donate online to Stuff the Bus- Let us shop for you! Please donate early so we can get best deals.
Give your time to volunteer in August.
Ask your friends to donate and/or volunteer.
Your donation PROMOTES LEARNING, ENCOURAGES SELF-ESTEEM, AND KEEPS KIDS IN SCHOOL.
School supplies will be distributed throughout the county for each participating school district by the school’s counselors in partnership with the United Way of the Ouachitas.
Fountain Lake High School Guidance Counselor, Carmen Keys says, “Our students are so blessed to have a caring community that pulls together to support them. Thank you to all who contribute to ‘Stuff the Bus.’ Your donations make a difference!”
