Stuff the Bus

School Supply Drive

Stuff the Bus is an annual school supply drive supporting Morgan County Schools, Hartselle City Schools, and Decatur City Schools. We collect essential items like notebooks, crayons, and backpacks. The collected supplies are distributed to those who need them the most.

Join us on our collection day at Walmart, or host a workplace school supply drive. We'll even pick up the donations from your location. You can also drop off your items at our 115 1st Avenue NE Decatur, AL 35601 office. 

This year, we aim to collect more than 10,000 school supplies. With hundreds of children in need of school supplies, your contribution can make a significant difference. Help us reach our goal!

Help us Stuff the Bus at Walmart! We will be at Walmart in Decatur on July 20th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., collecting school supplies for children in Morgan County. Whether it's crayons or a backpack, any donation makes a big difference.

We are also looking for volunteers to help us collect donations, pass out flyers, and spread the word about the drive. Join us in making a positive impact in our community!
