Stuff the Bus Collects Over $115,000 in Supplies and Donations!
Stuff the Bus is a three day back to school supply drive to help at-risk youth in New Hanover and Pender Counties. With the support of community volunteers, Communities In Schools of Cape Fear collected school supplies at several area “bus stops”, asking shoppers to donate school supplies. This year, bus stop locations were Walmart in Monkey Junction, Walmart in Burgaw, Walmart in Porter’s Neck, Office Depot on Oleander Drive, Harris Teeter at Mayfair Town Center, O’Brien Service Company and Port City Community Church.
Additionally, several corporate and community partners collected within their organizations, including SECU, Corning Credit Union, Piedmont Advantage Credit Union, New Hanover Regional Medical Center, Cape Fear Country Club More and many, many more.
Thanks to all of our community’s efforts, more than $115,000 worth of school supplies and donations were collected, and delivered to counselors and social workers at every public school in New Hanover and Pender Counties, who distribute them to students in need throughout the year.
