United Way of the National Capital Area is proud to present our Stuff the Bus initiative. We are calling on the community to help donate grade-appropriate school supplies including 3,000 backpacks to ensure middle school students have the materials they need to do their homework, take tests and complete projects to succeed in school. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, students have seen the academic effects of distance learning – particularly those who don’t have access to technology or the appropriate school supplies.
Each backpack will provide a child in our community with the school supplies from this list.
For every $25 raised, we will ensure one student has the resources that put them on the track to succeed. As we deal with this pandemic, students should not face obstacles to learning. Join us in helping students get off to a strong start for the 2020-2021 school year by donating today.
