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.
WHO: You — Our local businesses, organizations, civic groups, or other caring members of the community.
WHAT: Raise funds to purchase school supplies for Monroe County children in need.
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, 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.
*Donations can be made at KeysUnitedWay.org, by mailing a check to UWFK, PO Box 2143, Key West, FL, 33045, or by sending an Amazon gift card by mail or electronically to this email address. (Please write “Stuff the Bus 2018” on the memo line).
Interested in helping with Stuff the Bus 2018? Please contact UWFK CEO Leah Stockton at 305-735-1929 or by email. We hope you will join us in raising funds to Stuff the Bus for Monroe County students!
What is Raised in the Keys, Stays in the Keys!
