NASHVILLE, TN — United Way of Greater Nashville is collecting school supplies through its 13th annual ‘Stuff the Bus’ program.
This year, the collection drive is entirely virtual, supported by Piedmont Natural Gas and UPS. It will be accepting supplies until June 30, and here is how you can help:
- Buy the supply online through a dedicated shopping list
Visit https://www.roonga.com/uwgnstuffthebus2021 to see the list and buy the number of school supply kits you want to donate. You can choose to buy 1, 5, 10, or 25 kits.
- Make a monetary donation
Money received will be used to purchase the supplies on the list for kids in need. You can donate here: https://pages.donately.com/unitedwaynashville/form/frm_fe999b8d42a6.
Furthermore, you can form an independent team and run the supply drive collection online before purchasing the kits on Roonga. However, due to pandemic protocols, no direct donations are allowed.
This program is a cooperation of United Way and local organizations to distribute school supplies to students in Cheatham, Davidson, Hickman, Robertson, and Williamson counties.
“Children in our community need the tools and support to learn, now more than ever,” said Brian Hassett, president and CEO of United Way of Greater Nashville. “Stuff the Bus is so much more than just pencils and notebooks. It’s giving kids the resources they need to solve math problems and understand science experiments. To foster their creativity and to focus less on what they need and more on what they can be. We’re so grateful to each of you for stepping up and helping to get school supplies in the hands of kids who need it most.”
