Stuff the Bus : 2019

 The Bus is Full - Thanks to All!


On behalf of the United Way of Washington County-East, thank you to everyone who donated items or volunteered their time for our Stuff the Bus event. Your support for our programs helps us respond to the growing needs of today and strengthens our community for the future.

The United Way of Washington County-East partners with over 18 partner agencies and helps fund over 37 essential programs. One of these partner agencies, Community Thread, was instrumental in the success of this event. This year we moved our speed volunteering event to Community Thread and 80 volunteers participated in the counting and sorting of school supplies. With their help, we were able to raise over $24,000, supplying 238 children, nearly 100 families.

This incredible event could not have been as successful without the support of our sponsors; Andersen Windows, DiaSorin and SRI.

A special thank you to all of our supply drop off sites: Community Thread, Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, Cub Foods, Eckberg Lammers P.C., First Resource Bank, First State Bank & Trust, Keller Williams Premier Realty, Lake Elmo Bank, Menards: Stillwater, Menards: Oakdale, MidWestOne Bank, Sletten and Brettin Orthodontics - Stillwater Office, Stillwater Motors, The Zephyr Theatre, United Way of Washington County-East, Washington County Public Works. And a special thank you to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office for helping us pick up supplies!

It is estimated that more than 16% of kids enrolled in the Stillwater Area School District each year do not have all the tools they need to succeed in school. Community Thread and United Way of Washington County-East are joining together to meet this need by collecting school supplies for students in need.

Please consider joining us as a sponsor to meet this need in our community to help all kids succeed.
