Stuff the Bus Time is Here!



Digital Reporter- Jeff Bohen

Submitted: United Way of Bucks County

As we head into August, with Summers end in sight, The United Way of Bucks County and Wells Fargo Bank partner up for #StufftheBus2019.

In 2018, Stuff the Bus donors and volunteers achieved a huge milestone by providing an incredible 3,378 kids in need with backpacks filled with school supplies!

The year sights are set on supplying 3500 backpacks filled with needed school supplies.

Organizers say 16 percent of children in Bucks County struggle to get their basic school needs met – such as school supplies, and the partnership wants that to change even though requests for backpacks are expected increase again.

The United Way will be collecting school supplies donations on August 12, 13, & 22 at their Fairless Hills location at 413 Hood Boulevard. 

If you can’t attend the August event’s United Way has additional ways the community can help.

1. Donate online : A backpack filled with required school supplies costs about $35 per child, but all donations are welcome!
2 . Mail a check to: United Way at 413 Hood Blvd, Fairless Hills, PA 19030 with”Stuff the Bus” in the memo line.
3.  Bring your donation of NEW  school supplies to any of the STB collection sites on Monday 8/12 or Tuesday 8/13. A complete list of supplies can be found  here .
