When a student walks into the classroom with the basic supplies they need, they can focus on what really matters – learning! You can make sure this happens for over 12,996 students by hosting a school supply drive.
This year, United Way of Salt Lake celebrates its 11th year of Stuff the Bus! Our goal this year is to provide more than 13,000 students with school supplies and over 4,400 students with fully loaded backpacks so they can show up to school ready to learn. Students are located at 27 public schools and 6 community centers across the Wasatch Front.
You can choose to host a traditional supply drive, where you collect the supplies at your office or other central location, or a virtual monetary drive. A $25 donation supports a backpack of supplies for one student. You can sign up and register your drive. Once you register your school supply drive online and our Volunteer Engagement Team will reach out to you with marketing materials, best practices, and everything you need to make your drive a success.
