United Way ‘Stuff the Bus’ happening now through July 28

(United Way of Cullman County)

CULLMAN, Ala. – The United Way of Cullman County is hosting its sixth annual school supply drive, Stuff the Bus, now through July 28. Donated school supplies will be distributed to city and county school students who do not have access to school supplies throughout the year.

During the 2022-23 school year, over 50% of students were on free or reduced lunches; additionally, the poverty rate in Cullman County is higher than national averages, so the number of students who need school supplies in the community is extremely high. The United Way in Cullman collected thousands of school supplies last year through the drive, impacting thousands of students.

Participating businesses, retailers, churches and other partners will have collection boxes on-site until July 28 with the goal to stuff the bus full of supplies for both school systems within Cullman County. A full list of school supplies needed will be posted at each drop-off location; for a full list of participating drop-off sites and school supplies needed, as well as additional information, visit www.uwaycc.org/stuff-bus.
