Stuff the Bus


stuff the bus drive thru


United Way of Northeast Arkansas' Stuff the Bus is a community-wide school supply drive covering eight counties and serving more than 20 school districts across Northeast Arkansas. Stuff the Bus exists to provide school supplies for students in need across Northeast Arkansas. Last year's Stuff the Bus was a drive-thru event. We are excited to be back in front of your local Walmart Store this coming August!

Stuff the Bus 2022 will be held at your local Walmart Store on Saturday, August 6!

Stuff the Bus 2021 was held last August! Thanks to your generosity, we collected 23,658 school supply packages and $2,457.14 for students across NEA!
