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. This year's event will look a little different, but the goal is the same! Stuff the Bus exists to provide school supplies for students in need across Northeast Arkansas. Join us as we work to help students in our area succeed as they start a new school year!
