United Way of Northwest Florida is proud to work with the school districts in all six counties in our geographical region on our annual Stuff the Bus school supply drive.  Each summer we partner with WalMarts, local businesses, and volunteers throughout our region on a day to unite our communities in support of our students and teachers.  This year, UWNWFL is proud to also partner with the CPAR Leadership Academy to help make the 2024 Stuff the Bus a HUGE success!

Studies show that teachers spend an average of $750+ of their own money each year on classroom supplies and needs. Every year the critical need for supplies grows, while a large majority of our schools and families struggle to provide students with the most basic tools to succeed. United Way understands this need now more than ever and incorporates volunteerism, community participation, partnerships, and encouragement of the giving spirit to help supply our local classrooms with extra tools.

2024 Stuff the Bus is planned for July 27th from 9am-12pm at the following locations:

Bay County
