United Way Supports “Stuff the Bus” With


A Heartwarming Initiative to Support Students’ Education!

United Way’s “Cram the Van” campaign is an inspiring endeavor that aims to ensure every child has access to essential school supplies, regardless of their financial circumstances.

With the beginning of the new school year just around the corner, this initiative mobilizes communities to come together and make a significant difference in the lives of young students. All donations will be distributed to local schools and shelters. We pick up and drop off supplies with our van!

The concept is simple but powerful: United Way sets up collection points throughout the community, such as local businesses, schools, and community centers. These vibrant “Cram the Van” stations become beacons of hope, encouraging individuals, families, and organizations to donate a variety of school supplies, including backpacks, notebooks, pencils, pens, calculators, and more.

Through “Cram the Van,” United Way demonstrates the immense impact that a caring community can have when they unite behind a common cause. By working together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of countless children, inspiring them to dream big and empowering them to overcome obstacles.

The “Cram the Van” Campaign will run from July 31st through August 11th!

Join United Way’s “Cram the Van” campaign today and help us unlock the full potential of young students. Together, we can ensure that no child is left behind and that every child has the chance to succeed academically, setting them on a path toward a prosperous future.
