ABOUT STUFF THE SCHOOL BUS / STUFF THE DESK

Stuff the School Bus is a collaborative effort of several local non-profit, government and school agencies.  Every year, the Stuff the School Bus/Stuff the Desk Committee asks the community to actually stuff a school bus with donations of school supplies. The event is held during Lunch By The River. Later, the donated school supplies are distributed to local students in need during the Stuff the Desk event. All families who are in financial need are eligible; they simply need to pre-register online or by calling 2-1-1 Monday through Friday 8am and 5pm to apply. A postcard will be mailed reminding them of their time slots.
