The Stuff the Bus committee wants to thank our community members for the incredible support for the 2023 Stuff the Bus event. All together we collected over 24,000 school supply items!
We are still accepting school supply donations at the United Way office until August 15th, monetary donations can be made online at uwswac.org or by check made payable to United Way and mailed to 351 Oak Street, Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54494. Every year, hundreds of kids are without the supplies that they need to be successful at school. The Stuff the Bus committee tries to send children to school with the tools they need to thrive and this year, our community really came through and helped these students in need. A big thank you to the 28 volunteers who helped sort and inventory school supplies as they were dropped off by our local organizations who held drives.
Stuff the Desk distribution will be held on August 18th-19th, 2023. With a record number of 1,037 students registered to receive supplies this year, this initiative would not be possible without the incredible support and generosity of the community.
