Van Buren County Stuff The Bus Collecton Through August 10th

Van Buren County is preparing for the Annual “Stuff the Bus” to benefit the local School Districts in our community. “Stuff the Bus” provides new school supplies for children and families in need. The cost of sending a child back to school each year equipped to learn has sky rocketed. United Way provides a way to alleviate that cost for those who cannot afford to provide everything their child will need for the school year.

Children look forward to arriving to school on the first day with new notebooks, backpacks, lunch boxes and supplies. It is a different story for children whose families cannot afford to purchase these items. This year we are again asking local businesses to help us “Stuff the Bus” by collecting supplies at your business through August 10th. Help us bridge the gap that separates one child from another .

You may contact, Diane Kidwell at 501-376-4567 for more information and to schedule a date and time for your supplies to be picked up, or you may drop off your supplies on Saturday Morning August 10th in front of Wal-Mart. You may also email me at
