Stuff the Bus is the signature project of The Junior League of Bryan-College Station, Inc. (JLBCS), and provides thousands of children in our community with essential school supplies each year.
JLBCS has purchased $115,000 worth of school supplies for the 2022-2023 school year which provides 13,260 school supply kits to students in Kindergarten through 8th grade!
School supplies needed include (updated 07/14/2022):
- #2 pencils
- colored pencils
- washable markers
- dry erase markers
- glue sticks
- school boxes
- pencil pouches
- composition notebooks
- notebook paper
- solid-colored pocket folders
- spiral notebooks
During our week-long supply drive, we successfully brought in approximately 35,000 items and over $3,000 in monetary donations. These funds help us to continue supporting the project year after year.
Stuff the Bus began in 2000 and is primarily supported by the funds raised at our annual Charity Ball in the winter, through raffle tickets sales, table and event ticket sales, and our silent and live auctions.
If you know of a child that could benefit from Stuff the Bus, please contact their local school district.
