Now in its 14th year, United Way of Long Island’s Stuff-A-Bus, founded in partnership with Suffolk Transportation Service, Inc. provides students from least advantaged families with new school supplies, preparing them for their academic studies, building their self-esteem and setting them up for success. Supplies are collected from companies, organizations and individuals across Long Island, which are then donated to local elementary school students. Past participating school districts include: Amityville, Brentwood, Central Islip, Copiague, Freeport, Hempstead, Huntington, North Hempstead, South Country and Wyandanch.  Since its inception, Stuff-A-Bus has delivered almost 1,000,000 school supplies to 45,000 children. 

United Way remains committed to ensuring that all Long Island students are given equal opportunities and resources to succeed academically, as education is crucial to opening doors in our children's futures.

Thank You!

United Way of Long Island's 2022 Stuff-A-Bus back-to-school drive was a success. We were able to set up over 5,000 students for success this September. With everyone's help, we donated thousands of school supplies. We want to thank everyone involved, and this event was only possible with your help!
