ST. LUCIE COUNTY – Many students in St. Lucie County lack the resources to purchase school supplies. This sometimes translates to underachieving in the classroom, which eventually reflects poorly on their report card. The United Way of St. Lucie County started an initiative to prevent students from attending school without supplies.
United Way of St. Lucie County is hosting a virtual Stuff the Bus event. It is a 54-day push for the collection of school supplies that can be purchased online. This year the event is held from June 1 to July 24. Individuals are encouraged to order from the Amazon Wish List or make a cash donation.
The link to purchase from our Amazon Wish List can be found on our website and all ordered items will be shipped directly to our office. There are a variety of items that are needed such as pencils, paper, highlighters, crayons, markers, and much more.
United Way utilizes these supplies for our Tools for School St. Lucie Program. Tools for Schools is a free teacher resource store where teachers can come and shop for the supplies needed by students in their classrooms. Great way to impact the students directly!
United Way of St. Lucie County encourages people to LIVE UNITED by giving to the annual campaign, spreading the word about the positive impact United Way is making in our community and volunteering to make our community a better place for us all. We support numerous programs that enhance the lives of children.
