United Way Stuff the Bus Campaign

NEW RIVER VALLEY – Beginning Monday, July 18th, United Way of Montgomery, Radford and Floyd will have drop zones located all around the New River Valley to collect school supply donations. There will be two drop zone locations in Montgomery County, Radford City and Floyd County where individuals can donate school supplies to local children in need. A highly visible bin will be placed at the entrance of each drop zone with a United Way poster attached. These bins will remain in place until Monday, August 8th, when the Stuff the Bus drive will end.

In addition to these drop zones, United Way will be holding a special Stuff the Bus Event. This event will be held Friday, July 29th from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Dollar General Market, located at 112 West Main Street in Christiansburg. There will be a school bus parked all day where local residents can donate school supplies!

All items donated will be given to local children in need of school supplies. With growing needs in the area and decreases in donations, local children need our help more than ever.
