The new school year is just around the corner, and Central Texas students will face unique challenges as we put the pandemic behind us and look to the future.

One challenge no child should face is being without the essential school supplies they'll need to live up to their potential and achieve academic success.

That's where you and I come in.

What Is 'Stuff the Bus'?

Stuff the Bus is back! Every year we team up with fantastic local sponsors and our partners at News 10 to stuff a school bus full of supplies donated by the generous people of Central Texas.

How Can I Help?

We'll place donation bins at businesses across Central Texas so you'll never be too far from one.

If you're able to pick up some extra supplies while you're out shopping for your family, or if you're part of a business or organization that would like to help, you can leave supplies at the locations below from Monday, July 19 through Sunday, August 15.

Where Will Donated Supplies Go?

Donations will benefit students in need of supplies in Killeen ISD, Belton ISD, and Temple ISD. That includes children whose families are experiencing crises and currently without a stable place to call home.

What Should I Donate?

Great question! Local districts have released their school supply lists, so take a look at these to get an idea of what our young scholars will need in their backpacks when they get back to the classroom.

Together, We Can 'Stuff the Bus'

Last year's event was a real challenge due to the pandemic, but now that Texas is opening up we can once again Stuff the Bus and ensure that no student in Central Texas has to worry about whether or not they'll have the tools they'll need to do their absolute best in the classroom.

A special thank you to the great local sponsors below who've opened their doors to donations, and an extra special thank you to everyone who gives. Let's 'Stuff the Bus'!
