100% of your contribution will be used to purchase school supplies.

Each year, United Way of Frederick County works with local partners to collect donations of school supplies to provide students with the supplies they need to start the school year.

Community partners including Frederick County Public Schools, Religious Coalition for Emergency Human Needs serving the Frederick Feeder schools, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Evangelical Reformed United Church of Christ, Brunswick Ecumenical Assistance Committee on Needs (BEACON), Middletown Valley People Helping People (MVPHP), Glade Family Community Services (GVCS), Catoctin Area partners, Urbana Food Pantry and Emergency Relief Fund help make Stuff the Bus a huge success.

Major support for this year’s Stuff the Bus is being provided by M&T Bank, Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, and LSWG.  

Our commitment to providing school supplies to students in Frederick County continues. Kids in our community need the tools and support to learn - now more than ever.  

Watch a video about Stuff the Bus here.



The goal of United Way's Stuff the Bus program is to ensure that every student in Frederick County has the tools and support they need to learn. This program provides students with the supplies they need to start the school year through generous donations from our community. 

Donations of any amount are most appreciated. Here are some examples of what different cash donations might purchase:
•    $15 buys pencils, markers, and crayons for one kindergarten student
•    $30 supports one elementary student with basic supplies
•    $50 provides a middle school student with basic supplies and notebooks/binders
•    $100 buys a high school student basic supplies and some of the required learning tools
