“Stuff the Bus”

Head of the Lakes United Way Sets Students Up for Successful School Year With Supply Drive

Stuff the Bus is a school readiness program that provides backpacks and school supplies to help prepare students for school. From August 1-24, Head of the Lakes United Way asked individuals, employee groups, and service organizations to fight for kids in the Superior and Lake Superior School Districts by donating supplies. These supplies were delivered directly to the districts and distributed locally.

Some of the most requested supplies included: Earbuds, wide-ruled notebooks, markers, scissors, and pocket folders.
