Stuff the Bus

"The best poverty prevention tool we have is education."

For over 10 years, United Way of Frederick County's Stuff the Bus school supply collection campaign has ensured that every child has the school supplies they need to do homework, take tests, and complete science and art projects. Stuff the Bus is a partnership between United Way of Frederick County, area businesses and large number of community partners to enable every child's success by having the necessary school supplies. Stuff the Bus is responsible for collecting over 70,000 individual school supplies providing over 4,000 students a better opportunity to learn.
