Stuff the Bus 2021
Posted 6/30/21

Stuff the Bus is the largest and only school district endorsed school supply drive in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties! United Way of West Florida is proud to have the continued support of our partners in the drive, WEAR ABC 3 and Cat Country 98.7/News Radio 1620. 

 

Stuff the Bus is vital to our community as it not only helps students to receive the supplies they need to succeed, it also provides some relief to teachers who spend their own money to stock classrooms. Supplies will be collected on July 15th in Escambia County and July 22nd in Santa Rosa County. 

 

Monetary donations will be collected through the month of July. All dollars donated directly benefit local students, and we are able to stretch every dollar further by ordering supplies through the school district at deeply discounted rates and in bulk. You can donate here, or by texting SCHOOL850 to 41444. 

 

Volunteers interested in collecting, sorting, and packing supplies can sign up for multiple shifts and locations through Get Connected. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
