WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WI – Thank you to everyone who participated in Stuff the School Bus and Lunch by the River on August 1, 2019! The staff at United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties and Stuff the Bus Committee members are thrilled with the turnout! A special thank you to our volunteers, those who donated school supplies and Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce for the opportunity to sponsor Lunch by the River.
Because of the support of our community members, 900 students will be going to school with the proper school supplies. With this large number of registered students, we are still in need of monetary donations to help purchase additional supplies. Please send monetary donations to United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties, 351 Oak Street, Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54494; checks made payable to United Way. Education is one of our focus areas and it is very important to be able to provide our youth with the tools to excel. A good education is one of the pillars to a successful life.
About the Stuff the School Bus/Stuff the Desk Committee
Stuff the School Bus is a collaborative effort of several local non-profit, government and school agencies. Every year, the Stuff the School Bus/Stuff the Desk Committee asks the community to stuff a school bus with donations of school supplies. The event is held during Lunch by the River. Later, the donated school supplies are distributed to local students in need during the Stuff the Desk event. All families who are in financial need are eligible.
