Thanks to our generous donors and hardworking volunteers, Stuff the Bus provided 2,790 new, fully stuffed backpacks to students throughout Monterey County. It's more than a backpack, it's the first step toward success in school.
United Way Monterey County fights for the financial stability of families throughout Monterey County. Stuff the Bus eases the financial burden on families with school-aged children who are homeless or near homeless. Giving a student who is homeless a backpack with all the required supplies promotes learning, encourages self-esteem and helps kids stay in school.
