The United Way ‘Stuff The Bus’ Fundraiser Is Going On Now
The United Way of Greater Texarkana "Stuff The Bus" school supply drive is underway.
The "Stuff The Bus" fundraiser is in its 12th-year and is hosted by the United Way of Texarkana. Donations for the 'Stuff The Bus" fundraiser can be made here.
Your donation of supplies or monetary donations will go towards helping fill the 1900 backpacks of students in ten school districts throughout four counties. One hundred percent of your funds stay one hundred percent local. Please help the United Way of Greater Texarkana by donating to the Stuff the Bus school supply drive.
Jennifer Lewis, CEO of Texarkana Resources has this to say about the 'Stuff The Bus' drive:
“Last year during the pandemic, we had to do something a little different. We ended up ordering all of the supplies in bulk, and we were able to prepare more backpacks than ever before. That’s why this year we are asking our community for monetary donations. One bag costs us $10 to make."
The United Way of Greater Texarkana has collaborated with more than 30 local businesses to put this year's Stuff-The-Bus on to collect school supplies for children that need help in our local schools. The Stuff-The-Bus program is organized and driven by volunteers to assist struggling families in getting the necessary supplies for the upcoming school year. Your donations help provide the items for our local students in need.
If you need to make a donation, you can also bring it by the United Way office to 214 Spruce Street in Texarkana.
