The best poverty prevention tool we have is education
Ensuring that children have the supplies they need to do their homework, take tests, and complete science and art projects is a simple but important way we can help them get their education and succeed in school.
That's why each fall United Way engages local businesses and individuals in a "Stuff the Bus" collection drive. In 2016, over 1,500 FCPS students benefited from the drive, over 77 collection sites were set up, and over 33,000 items were collected in five school buses.
Next year, we plan to get even more, but we need your help!
Please keep reading for a list of collection sites locations where you can drop off supplies. The list is frequently being updated with new locations.
If you can't make it to one of the locations, you can make learning possible by donating online. Giving through our website is easy and secure, simply click here to give now.
If your business/organization would like to take part in this initiative, please sign up here to be a Stuff the Bus donation site.
If your child or a child you know could make use of new school supplies for the next school year, please call 2-1-1 to learn more about how to connect with our initiative.
For more information, please contact Joyce Kwamena-Poh at (240-578-4009) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
