With the 2023-2024 school year behind us, it is time for United Way of Frederick County’s annual Stuff the Bus school-supply drive. For the 37,000-plus ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households in Frederick County, the additional cost of school supplies adds extra stress on an already tight budget.

But you can make a difference by helping provide Frederick County Public Schools students in ALICE households with the tools they need for a successful school year. Together with United Way of Frederick County, you can bring hope and excitement for the upcoming school year to your community.

Through July 30, new, unused school supplies can be donated at any of United Way of Frederick County’s public drop-off sites located throughout Frederick County. For a full list of drop-off locations, visit https://www.unitedwayfrederick.org.

All new, unused school supplies will be accepted, but high priority items include: composition notebooks, earbuds (with microphone), scissors, markers, and binders.

Don’t have time to purchase school supplies and drop them off? Donate today by visiting https://fundraise.givesmart.com/vf/StuffTheBus24.
