Stuff the Bus

Make sure every student has the supplies they need to be successful in school

When a student walks into the classroom with the basic supplies they need, they can focus on what really matters - learning! You can make sure this happens for over 12,000 students by hosting a school supply drive, helping count and sort supplies, or stuffing backpacks with more than 400 other volunteers on August 10, 2019.

If you can't host a drive or volunteer, you can still support Stuff the Bus by donating to help purchase school supplies!

Host a School Supply Drive

Collect supplies or online donations to provide more than 98,000 individual school supplies to students across Salt Lake Valley. All school supplies must be dropped off on July 29 & 30 in South Salt Lake. Read these 10 Steps To Host a Successful School Supply Drive to get started or donate to our Virtual Supply Drive.
