CULLMAN, Ala. – The United Way of Cullman County will host its fifth annual Stuff the Bus school supply drive from Friday, July 15 to Friday, July 22, benefiting Cullman City Schools and Cullman County Schools students.  

The initiative seeks to ease the financial burden on many families throughout the area, more than 50% of which have children who qualify for free or reduced-price school lunches.  

Last year’s campaign saw more than 13,000 school supplies for area students donated, and this year’s goal has increased to 20,000.  

Among the supplies being sought are pencils, pens, colored pencils, crayons, erasers, zippered pencil cases, rulers, graph paper, three-ring binders (1 inch, 2 inch and 3 inch), loose leaf paper, glue sticks, safety scissors, composition notebooks, index cards and hand sanitizer. 

The Cullman Tribune is a proud drop-off location for Stuff the Bus. Additional locations are available throughout Cullman County.
