The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties’ Stuff the Bus Back to School event was a huge success. Over 100 volunteers came out on their own time to help package together school supplies for kids that couldn’t otherwise afford them.
This year, the United Way is looking to increase corporate and community collection sites to reach its goal of supporting 5,000 children within Cannon County, Murfreesboro City and Rutherford County schools. Focusing on one of the United Way’s priority community issues, helping children and youth succeed, United Way will work to collect resources that students need to encourage school readiness.
Stuff the Bus collection items included:
Dry Erase Markers
Glue Sticks (Elmer’s)
Stuff the Bus event sponsors include Hot Topic, City Auto, State Farm, UPS, Kennametal and Quinn’s Mercantile.
