Stuff the Bus!

Stuff the Bus Gets Kids Ready to Learn

Thank you to all the donors who contributed to Stuff the Bus as well as to the nearly 100 volunteers who came out to sort supplies and stuff backpacks.  We stuffed 1,942 complete backpacks on Saturday and have had more donations since then, bringing current total to 2,100 and still counting.  We have a mismatch of left-over supplies which we'll be supplementing to complete more backpacks.  Stay tuned for the official number.

Stuff the Bus 2013 wraps up Sept. 15.

Backpacks were delivered to the Homeless Liaison for each district in partnership with the Monterey County Office of Education.  Liaisons will ensure that the backpacks go to the children with the most need.  Check out our photos on Facebook and our sponsors below.

There are more than 5,144 students in Monterey County who are homeless or in great need and cannot afford the supplies they need for school. To help send these kids back to school fully equipped to succeed, United Way Monterey County spearheaded its 3rd Annual Stuff the Bus school supply drive. Although the drive has formally wrapped up, we're still taking last-minute donations. $25 buys a fully stocked backpack.
