When a child starts school with a backpack full of the supplies they need, they can focus on what really matters – 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.

Stuff the Bus 2023 is presented by Univest Financial and is sponsored by First National Bank & Trust of Newtown, Comcast, Dunmore, Foundations Community Partnership, L3 Harris, and PECO.

TOGETHER, WE CAN SET EVERY BUCKS COUNTY STUDENT UP FOR SUCCESS!

When a child starts school with a backpack full of the supplies they need, they can focus on what really matters – learning. Your support will send children in Bucks County back to school ready to learn and ready to succeed!
