Launches Online School Supply Drive to Support Kids in Need
June 8, 2021, GREATER NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Today, United Way of Greater Nashville announced that the 13th annual Stuff the Bus school supply collection drive will be entirely virtual again this year, thanks to the support of Piedmont Natural Gas and UPS.
Here’s how you can help now through June 30:
- Run an online supply drive in your workplace or community group. We’ll provide you with all the tools to make it a success. Visit unitedwaygreaternashvill
e.org/stuffthebus to get started.
- Purchase supplies from our online store. Now through Wednesday, June 30, visit our online store to select your number of school supply kits and make your purchase.
- Give money. You can give any amount you wish though our online giving platform. We’ll use your contribution to purchase school supplies for kids in need.
United Way is working with local organizations to distribute supplies to local students in Cheatham, Davidson, Hickman, Robertson and Williamson counties.
“Children in our community need the tools and support to learn, now more than ever,” said Brian Hassett, president and CEO of United Way of Greater Nashville. “Stuff the Bus is so much more than just pencils and notebooks. It’s giving kids the resources they need to solve math problems and understand science experiments. To foster their creativity and to focus less on what they need and more on what they can be. We’re so grateful to each of you for stepping up and helping to get school supplies in the hands of kids who need it most.”
