Stuff the Bus

United Way's annual "Stuff the Bus" school supply drive provides an opportunity for our community to help students achieve their potential through quality education by providing all 450+ elementary school classrooms in Gratiot & Isabella Counties with much-needed supplies.

This innovative approach provides local elementary teachers the opportunity to put the supplies in the hands of the kids that need them the most, focusing on children from lower-income families.

This year, we partnered with local businesses and organizations to sponsor every elementary school classroom in both counties to help our local elementary school teachers.

Their sponsorship of $100 helped to provide the following items that our teachers specially asked for: dry erase markers, No.2 pencils, hand sanitizer, Clorox or Lysol wipes, Kleenex, crayons, markers, erasers, colored pencils, copy paper, glue sticks, kid's scissors and much more.
