Join United Way of Ventura County’s 2021 Stuff the Bus campaign!

Provide essential school supplies for local students experiencing homelessness or from disadvantaged families. 

You can help pave the path to academic success for a child from a homeless or low-income family. Furthermore, your support not only provides essential school supplies – studies show that it also promotes learning, building self-esteem, and helps ensure that our youth stay in school. 

Because of the economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis, we know that the need for support among homeless and low-income families has increased greatly.  So your help is needed this year more than ever.

It can cost under $11 to provide a full set of supplies for a student in need.  Please consider sponsoring a student(s) with a complete package.

Stuff the Bus 2021 will kick off on Monday, June 7th and will run until Friday, July 9th.
