Stuff the Bus for Kids is Back for its 9th Year in a Row
… And here’s how you can help.
As you wrap up your own back-to-school shopping, consider swinging by the Bothell Fred Meyers or the QFC on Evergreen in Everett. While you’re there, you can say hello to the friendly volunteers who are on hand to help Stuff the Bus! They have lists of needed supplies for local families, if you’re in the mood and have the means, here's your opportunity to aid in a good cause.
All donations go to benefit needy students in the Everett Public Schools. The goal is to stuff 1,800 backpacks to distribute to Everett's twenty-six schools in time for the start of the school year. While there are slim volunteer opportunities remaining, there is a great need for supplies, and your help in that area would go very far for a local family.
If you don’t have the time to shop, a cash or check donation is always welcomed as well.
The collection event is Friday, August 17th through Sunday, August 19th!
You can find big yellow buses at the following locations and times:
QFC at 4919 Evergreen Way, Everett Fri. 8/17, Sat. 8/18 and Sun. 8/19 from 9:00am to 5:00pm
