Stuff the Bus helps local students get the tools they need for the upcoming school year! In 2022, we collected $11,000 worth of supplies, impacting over 10,000 students in 53 schools across Okaloosa - Walton counties. Without our community's generosity, students would lack the supplies they need to be successful during the school year.
Regarding this initiative, Marcus Chambers, Superintendent of Okaloosa County School District, stated "Any help that you can give to allow our students to have their own individual supplies would be greatly appreciated." He went on to say, "I want to thank United Way and the many community sponsors who make a difference in the lives of our students by giving them the much needed supplies that they need each and everyday."
