United Way of the Titusville Region
Stuff the Bus Project a Success With a Little Help From Out Friends.
A big “Thank You” goes out to everyone in our community that helped make the ‘Stuff the Bus’ project a success! Through the generosity of many, United Way of the Titusville Region and the THS Student United Way/Rotary Interactors were able to collect over 7,200 school items to benefit area students heading back to school. Titusville Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, represented by Jessica Lorenze, stopped into the United Way with a plethora of goodies for stuff the bus to help put the annual event over the 7,000 item mark.
Cash donations were used to supplement the donated items with the purchase of $350 additional items including a large bottle of hand sanitizer for each classroom. Donations included crayons; pencils; erasers; colored pencils; glue and glue sticks; pens; notebooks; folders; binders; backpacks; lunch boxes; hand sanitizer and tissues; socks and underwear.
With the dedication of the Titusville High School Student United Way members, many flyers were distributed to individuals during the Oil Festival Parade and at Walmart. The resulting numbers of supplies were recently sorted and ready for distribution to the School Resource Coordinator; Associated Charities and other agencies. The THS Student United Way provided mounds of student supplies as well as tissues and hand sanitizer for classroom use for ECLC, Main Street, Pleasantville and Hydetown buildings within the Titusville School District Items will be provided to students in need.
‘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 school and during the school year ahead.
