Since 2014, United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley has facilitated the Stuff the Bus Initiative, a community-wide school supply drive coordinated through our corporate partners and community stakeholders to collect, sort and distribute supplies to thousands of children in need at local Title 1 schools in our community.
Last year, a total of 4,878 backpacks were stuffed with school supplies!
This year, as needs and technology have changed, the Stuff the Bus collection has transitioned to meet those needs. Companies and individuals can collect and donate school backpacks and donors have the option to monetarily support students and classrooms with backpacks and earbuds for the upcoming school year!
To participate in a backpack collection (June 7th -July 16th) contact Denise Guthrie at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on dates and collection drop-off schedules.
