United Way of the New River Valley is kicking off its eleventh-annual Stuff the Bus campaign on July 1st, 2020. The Stuff the Bus program is a school supply drive for children in need in the New River Valley. Locations throughout the community will have drop bins available for donations July 1st through July 31st for community members to contribute to the effort.
All donations stay local to serve the needs of local children. Distribution of the school supplies this year will be through local partner charities and given to local school systems to help teachers.
Stuff the Bus Event will take place Saturday, July 25th from 9am to 6pm at the UNITED WAY OFFICE (111 West Main St). The community is urged to come out and “stuff the bus” to send local children back to school prepared to learn.
You can easily donate school supplies online by purchasing items from our Amazon wish list. The much-needed supplies will be delivered directly to United Way NRV.
If you designate “United Way of Montgomery Radford and Floyd” as your charity of choice on Amazon Smile, a portion of any purchase you make at any time will help us carry out our mission on an ongoing basis.
In 2019 residents across the New River Valley donated enough items and served over 586 children. Although last year’s Stuff the Bus campaign was a huge success, more children need our help. Please join us in our efforts to provide school supplies for children in our community, in hopes we will reach more children and help more families this year.
