Every summer, Heart of West Michigan United Way organizes Stuff the Bus, a school supply collection drive to help students and teachers in Kent County. This year, items will be distributed to elementary & middle schools in Grand Rapids, Kentwood, Wyoming, Cedar Springs, Kenowa Hills, and Sparta. The United Way School Bus will be visiting BRAINS on Tuesday, August 7th to collect donated school supplies. Help us STUFF THE BUS!

Your donation of back-to-school supplies help ensure that local students start their new school year ready to learn!

Collections run July 23- August 6. Each year, United Way’s Stuff the Bus provides tens of thousands of school supplies to K-12 schools in Kent County.
