STUFF THE BUS
July - August 2023
The cost of school supplies that comes with sending a child to school can be very expensive. In fact, it is estimated that parents spend an average of $864 per child in grades K-12 (according to the National Retail Federation). United Way of Washington County – East and Community Thread recognize the importance of helping all kids succeed by providing them with the essentials tools needed to start the year off right in class.
In 2022, Stuff the Bus served 715 students attending school within the Stillwater Area School District (a 54% increase from 2021). Although over half of the students served were in elementary school, hundreds of students in middle school and high school received supplies as well. In all, 283 households were served by the program (a 39% increase from 2021)
