Help “Stuff the Bus” With Supplies for Local Kids In A New Way
Members of the THS Student United Way/Rotary Interact along with the United Way of the Titusville Region are once again asking the community to help us “STUFF THE BUS”.
Stuff the Bus is a program designed to allow caring individuals to donate school items to be given to students in need of a helping hand in getting ready for the start of the new school year. According to ALICE Report, released by the United Way of Pennsylvania June 18, 2019, 2,458 hardworking families in the United Way service area cannot afford basic needs and see no path to financial stability. Projects like Stuff the Bus help families to stretch their dollars a bit further to help them meet other financial needs.
Members of the THS Student United Way/Rotary Interact will be collecting donations this year in a new way. Due to COVID-19, the students will be unable to have a collection at Walmart this year, however residents will still be able to donate school items in new and different ways.
- Items can be purchased online with orders being delivered directly to the United Way office at 208 W. Spring Street.
Please note: Walmart registry includes backpacks, socks and under garments for students ages 4-6 and some school supplies. Amazon registry includes school supplies. Be sure to check both registries for needed items.
- Purchase and drop off of donation at the United Way office at 208 W. Spring Street.
Items needed include: Backpacks; pencils; pens; crayons; glue/glue sticks; highlighters; washable markers; tissue; hand sanitizer; colored pencils; calculators; rulers; erasers; notebooks; and underwear and socks for students ages 4-6. Monetary donations are also welcome. Students are collecting donations to fill 100 backpacks in our community.
THS Student United Way/Interact members will sort all donations and fill 100 backpacks with school supplies. The backpacks will then be distributed to pre-registered families within the Titusville Area School District to be distributed to local families and children in the community. Deadline for donations is August 17th
