Stuff the Bus: School Supply Drive

Pinellas Education Foundation's annual Stuff the Bus school supply donation drive ensures that students with the greatest need have the tools to succeed in the new school year. Did you know 60% of Pinellas County Schools’ students are economically disadvantaged? This year’s supply drive is now more important than ever given the financial hardships created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Multiple Ways to Give

There are many ways you can help support Stuff the Bus this year. Scroll down on the page to learn more about each option.

  • Support our virtual supply drive by shopping for supplies online through our lists on RightGift and Amazon.
  • Donate school supplies in-person at Woodie’s Wash Shack until Sept. 4.
