Stuff the Bus Helps Students Succeed in School
Started in 2009, Stuff the Bus is our community-wide school supply drive for Blair County children in need. When family budgets are tight, backpacks and schools supplies are often out of reach. When you support Stuff the Bus, you don't just provide supplies, you give kids confidence and you show them that they belong to a community that cares.
In Blair County, nearly 1 in 4 children live in a single-parent household and approximately 15% of our children live below the poverty line. Over 51,000 households in Blair County are above the poverty line but make less than what's needed to afford basic essentials. Stuff the Bus helps families stretch their budgets further.
In 2021, Stuff the Bus provided school supplies to 475 Blair County students.
