Stuff the Bus Erie & Huron County

Greetings from the Stuff the Bus Erie & Huron Counties Committee! Each year we partner with local businesses, organizations, and community members to provide new backpacks and school supplies for local student in grades K-8. In addition to all school districts in Erie County, we also serve Monroeville, New London, South Central, Willard, and St. Francis Xavier in Huron County.

Last year we stuffed a record of 555 backpacks, and we are certain we will exceed that number this year. The success of this program is possible through the generous donations we receive each year from community partners like you!

There are three ways you can help!

  1. Encourage your employees to collect and donate school supplies. You can collect various items or you can agree to fill non-gender backpacks with requested supplies.
  2. Conduct a school supply drive at your business and encourage your customers and employees to get involved!
  3. Make a monetary donation. Every dollar helps buy school supplies for families in need!

We will be collecting donations through August 4, 2023. You can download a copy of our community partnership form here and a shopping list of needed items here. You are also welcome to contact Heather Gilchrist at 419-625-9025, ext. 1342 or with any questions about Stuff the Bus.

Thank you for supporting the future of our local kids by providing a fresh start to the upcoming school year!

With sincere gratitude,
Stuff the Bus Committee of Erie & Huron Counties
