Starting the school year without essential supplies sets children behind – even before they begin learning.
Stuff the Bus is our community-wide school supply drive for children in need. When families are struggling to pay rent and put food on the table, school supplies are often out of reach. With your help, we can give students the tools – and confidence – that they need to excel in the classroom.
SAFE IN THE CLASSROOM AND AT HOME
The safety of our children in the classroom and at home remains a concern. That’s why we are continuing to provide hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies in addition to back-to-school essentials. Your help ensures that all children – regardless of income – have the supplies they need to keep their families and their schools safe.
HOW YOUR DOLLARS HELP
In Bucks County, 4 out of every 25 kids are from economically insecure families. Stuff the Bus ensures that every kid in Bucks County – regardless of income – returns to the classroom with the tools they need to excel.
*If we meet the needs of all students on our list, remaining funds may be used to help those in Bucks County with similar needs throughout the year.
