Stuff the Bus Comes to the Southcoast
Team up with Fun 107, WBSM and a host of fantastic sponsors to bring school supplies and backpacks to local children in need! Here's what you need to know and how you can help.
What is Stuff the Bus?
Stuff the Bus will benefit local children in need of school supplies for the upcoming school year. From August 10 to August 30, you can drop off pens, pencils, notebooks, backpacks, crayons, markers or any new supplies at multiple drop boxes in the area. Once all the supplies have been collected, they'll be used to fill backpacks that will be donated by GiftsToGive to children who otherwise may not be ready for their first day of school.
Who Gets the Supplies?
In the Southcoast alone, there are over 35,000 children who live in poverty. This coming school year, 1 in 4 children on the Southcoast will have to go to school without the necessary supplies. That's where YOU can help!
What Should I Donate?
- Writing utensils: pens, pencils, highlighters, markers and crayons
- Paper products: notebooks and loose leaf paper packs
- Carrying cases: pen cases and backpacks
- Miscellaneous school supplies: White Out, glue sticks, construction paper, binders, planners, rulers, erasers, scissors, folders, book covers, hand sanitizer, index cards
