Last year, the United Way Stuff the Bus campaign saw widespread support from our community and served 583 local low-income children with backpacks brimming with school supplies. In Floyd County, 143 backpacks were distributed. In Radford City, 207 backpacks were distributed. In Montgomery County, 233 backpacks were distributed. Local businesses collected donations and served as convenient drop-off locations across the New River Valley, while residents donated supplies and helped stuff buses during the Stuff the Bus event at the United Way of the New River Valley office.
How can you help? Drop off school supplies at Walmart in Christiansburg on July 24th or any of the drop off points listed below anytime in July.
You may also donate online. All monies donated will be used to purchased school supplies for local children.
On behalf of the families and children served, United Way would like to express sincere appreciation to each donor, volunteer, and partner charity that plays a hand in the success of each year’s Stuff the Bus school supply drive. For additional information or to find out how you can help next year, please contact the United Way of the New River Valley at (540) 381-2066 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
