STUFF THE BUS FOR MONROE COUNTY SCHOOL CHILDREN!
United Way of the Florida Keys is once again conducting our Stuff the Bus school supply drive for students in Monroe County and we need your support.
To ensure our local students receive the supplies they really need to succeed, this year we are asking for monetary donations only. Working closely with each Monroe County school, UWFK will use the funds raised to purchase the tools most needed by each schools’ students. Your donation will allow us to expand beyond backpacks and crayons to also include important educational devices like graphing calculators and other digital equipment some students cannot afford, but need for a successful school year.
WHEN: Donate until August 24. Supplies will be purchased and delivered to the schools at the beginning of September.
HOW:Make a donation at KeysUnitedWay.org with the Donate button on the right, or by Amazon gift card or check.*
Each school will create a wish list for needed supplies. We will then buy supplies in bulk, leveraging your contribution with others. We will work closely with each Monroe County School to purchase the supplies most needed by students to ensure their success.
Join us on July 31 from 5:30-7:30 pmat Hard Rock Cafe in Key West, to help kick off Stuff the Bus. For a cash donation to Stuff the Bus, you can enjoy free light bites, music and fun.
*Checks can be mailed to UWFK, PO Box 2143, Key West, FL, 33045, or by sending an Amazon gift card by mail or electronically to our email address(please write “Stuff the Bus 2018” on the memo line of any donation).
UWFK stays busy all year long working with dedicated partners throughout the community, serving those in need, and finding ways to advance our giving. For updates on UWFK's most recent events, check out our blog here.
