A special thank you to our Stuff the Bus Co-Chairs:
Jay Tate, Harlow Moving Company
The United Way of South Central Illinois is helping all children in Jefferson County get a good start to the school year by partnering with local businesses to coordinate Stuff the Bus, an opportunity that will provide needy students with proper school supplies and personal hygiene products to assist each of them with their studies and help build self-esteem.
Throughout the summer months, we ask employee groups and service organizations to volunteer to contribute and collect donations of new school supplies for local elementary, middle school, and high school students from low-income families.
All children look forward to having the necessary items to start the school year off right, but it’s a different story for unfortunate families who cannot afford these items. That’s where your business or organization can help.
