Stuff the Bus


Help us “stuff the bus” with donated back-to-school supplies and ensure that local students start their new school year ready to learn! You can sign-up your workplace, church, school, or community space as a collection site for this annual drive or drop-off donations at United Way.

  • Collections run July 24- August 8. Each year, United Way’s Stuff the Bus provides tens of thousands of school supplies to schools in Kent County. This year, items will be distributed to elementary & middle schools in Grand Rapids, Kentwood, Wyoming, and Sparta.
  • Get involved by starting a collection in your workplace, church, school, etc.: http://www.hwmuw.org/stbsignup
  • Drop-off school supplies between now & August 7 at our offices, 118 Commerce Ave SW, Grand Rapids, MI (8a-5p M-Th, 8a-12p F).

A list of suggested donations can be found here.
