[ARCHIVED] 14th Annual Stuff the Bus Event


Ann Arbor, Michigan – Kicking off their 2021 United Way Campaign, Washtenaw County Employees are reaching out to the public in a “United” effort to collect needed school supplies to students in the Washtenaw County Public School Districts.

“There are so many children right here in Washtenaw County who start the school year without the necessary school supplies.  Washtenaw County employees, in partnership with the United Way, are hosting the 14th annual Stuff the Bus event to help these students have the tools they need to be successful by collecting donated schools supplies from employees and the public.  This year, I am proud to announce we will have two drop off locations, one in Ypsilanti and one in Ann Arbor. Every year the employees and citizens of this County continue to give generously to this cause and once again this year I would like to encourage all of you to come out and donate to a worthy event which benefits children right here in the community and impacts their futures in a big way,” said County Administrator, Gregory Dill.

Washtenaw County employees and the public at large will “Stuff the Bus” with everything from backpacks to pencils to crayons and glue sticks.  On August 2 -August 6, a full sized school bus will be located at the Target parking lots in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor, Monday through Friday, 8:30am-3:00pm.

·      TARGET, 3749 Carpenter Rd. Ypsilanti

·      TARGET, 2000 Waters Rd. Ann Arbor (Ann Arbor / Saline Rd.) in front of the Xfinity store 

All school supplies will be donated to the schools who have requested to participate (all WCSD schools were invited to participate).  The donations will be sorted and delivered to the schools based on the level of need they indicated, and the schools are responsible for distributing the supplies to their students.
