Stuff the Bus
Wells Fargo & United Way of Bucks County present Stuff the Bus 2016!
Here in Bucks County, about 20,000 kids struggle to have their basic needs met. For these kids, things we may consider ‘basics’- like back to school supplies – can be hard to come by.
We believe it’s critically important for ALL kids to start the school year with the right supplies. That’s why we need your help with Stuff the Bus.
In 2015, thanks to our donors and volunteers, we distributed 1,932 backpacks stuffed with school supplies to kids in need. That was a 77% increase over the year before.
Our goal in 2016 is to provide over 2,000 backpacks to Bucks County kids! We’re grateful to have the support of presenting sponsor Wells Fargo, as well as sponsors Sesame Place, PECO, Bank of America, and Cummins. But we need your help, too!
The easiest way to help is to make a donation online. All gifts are welcome, but it costs roughly $35 to provide a child in need with a sturdy backpack filled with all of the supplies schools in Bucks County require.
You can also donate NEW schools supplies at any of our collections sites.
If you have what it takes to get other people excited about a project, try hosting your own mini-drive! Our volunteers have hosted drives at work, in their neighborhoods, and even ‘Stuff the Bus’ parties at home.
We will need all of the supplies you collect by August 15 – 16.
This year, we will be hosting both sorting and packing events. Information and a volunteer sign up page will be posted soon, but if you have any questions, you can contact Danielle Bush at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215.949.1660 ext 112.
