Unfortunately for many kids, that is exactly what they experience. That's why United Way of Northeast Arkansas has joined forces with local businesses and the community to “Stuff the Bus” with school supplies for kids in need throughout Northeast Arkansas. By donating school supplies, everyone can contribute to a successful school year, with each child having the needed supplies to excel.
Through “Stuff the Bus”, not a single crayon or eraser is wasted. The donations are maximized by distributing items directly to each school. There, a supply closet is accessed throughout the school year by teachers or other staff for their students who don’t have the needed school supplies. All supplies collected are delivered directly to the area schools in time for the start of the school year.
