2015 Stuff the Bus Photo Blog

Thank you to everyone who helped make United Way of Sumner County's 2015 Stuff the Bus school supply drive a success.

More than 100 volunteers took part in Stuff the Bus activities, including the Sort-A-Thon (Tuesday, 7/28), Pack-A-Thon (Thursday, 7/30), and Distribution Day (Saturday, 8/1). Volunteers came from businesses, TN PROMISE students, churches, and individuals.

Thank you to the Chambers of Commerce across Sumner County for serving as school supply collection sites this year, as well of dozens of businesses that held internal supply drives and encouraged donations from their customers. Special thanks to the Sumner Association of Realtors for their collections, donations, and promotion of this year's event; COMPASS for its continuing support of Stuff the Bus; Sumner County Schools; the nonprofit agencies that took part in our Distribution Day; and Volunteer State Community College for promoting Stuff the Bus, collecting supplies, and hosting our sorting, packing, and distribution activities.

This year's Stuff the Bus packed and distributed 600 backpacks for students across the county, and United Way of Sumner County also partnered with the Portland Chamber to help them with the 700 backpacks distributed in their community.

Because of the efforts of everyone who took part in Stuff the Bus this year, approximately 1,300 students will be able to attend the first day of school with the basic supplies they need to fully participate in the learning process.

GREAT THINGS HAPPEN WHEN WE LIVE UNITED!
