Stuff The Bus

2016 Stuff the Bus

 

What is Stuff the Bus?

Stuff the Bus is an annual School Supply Drive that provides supplies to low-income school-aged children.

In the North Penn and Souderton Area School Districts, 24% of students (nearly 5,000) were living in poverty in 2014, as measured by free and reduced lunch rates (an indicator of poverty).  Thousands of low-income families sacrifice sending kids back to school with the supplies they need, in order to put a roof over their head and food on the table.

The 2015 Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive was a success.  Over 100 volunteers came to lend a hand to count, sort and organize school supplies, and “stuff” 1,300 backpacks at Penndale Middle School. But there is still more to do!

Speacial thanks to The Giving Tree who made 1,500 sock rolls to be included in our Stuff the Bus backpacks. The socks are rolled with a toothbrush and toothpaste so every child in need will have proper hygiene care.
