Each year, United Way of the River Cities and Ohio University Southern partner to present Stuff the Bus, a community school supply drive. Throughout our five-county service area, school systems, transit companies, retailers, and volunteers work together to help vulnerable students get the tools they need to be successful.
Stuff the Bus ensures schools start the academic year ready to help support vulnerable students, but their needs are bigger than our one-day collection drive.
