In its 9th year, United Way of Long Island’s annual Stuff-A-Bus program partnered with Principal Honor Roll Sponsor Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP and four Long Island bus transportation companies; (Suffolk Transportation Service, Educational Bus Transportation, Huntington Coach Corporation, East End Bus Lines) as well as new partner Long Island Nets, to collect and deliver a record 160,000 school supplies from companies, organizations and individuals across Long Island to more than 7,000 local elementary school students.
The Stuff-A-Bus program provides students from low-income families with new school supplies, preparing them for their academic studies, building their self-esteem, and setting them up for success. Supplies include backpacks, lunch boxes, notebooks, pencils, crayons and scissors – items that young children require in order to excel in their studies.
Supplies were delivered to the following school districts: Copiague, Wyandanch, South Huntington, Huntington, Central Islip, Brentwood, South Country, William Floyd, West Babylon, Amityville, Freeport, Town of Hempstead and Uniondale.
Thank you to our sponsors, partners and volunteers:
