Each year United Ways across the country partner with their local Walmarts to hold a community school supply drive called Stuff the Bus. Volunteers provide shoppers with a list of needed supplies compiled by the school system and encourage them to purchase an item to donate. Donated items are placed on a bus in the parking lot and driven to a distribution point at the end of the event.

This year, UWRC is holding Stuff the Bus events on two separate Saturdays:

Saturday, August 4 from 10 am – 1 pm – Lawrence County, OH, and Mason County, WV


Saturday, August 11 from 10 am – 1 pm – Cabell (both Walmarts), Wayne, and Lincoln counties (the Lincoln County Event will be a Back-to-School Bash, since they don’t have a Walmart)


We need volunteers at all locations to talk up the cause, pass out lists to entering customers, track donations on the bus, and/or help unload at the distribution points. This is a very tangible way to help vulnerable students in our service area, plus it’s fun and family-friendly!


Locations are listed below. If you’re interested in helping, please sign up at http://www.unitedwevolunteer.org/aem/general/. Feel free to contact Andrea Roy at andrea.roy@unitedwayrivercities.org or 304.523.8929, ext. 107 with any questions.
