Stuff the Bus

You "Stuffed the Bus" with United Way!

 Thank you for Stuffing the Buses!

Your response to the 2010 Stuff the Bus was tremendous. Thanks to you, we stuffed two school buses for at-risk youth! 

Our hallways were flooded with school supplies, household items, food and so much more. We were thrilled to let our partner agencies come and "shop" for these much-needed items. Thirty-one of our agencies that serve at risk youth received items (that's 50% of our total agencies!)

Thank you again for making the second annual Stuff the Bus such a great success! And a special thank you to the top three contributing companies: Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Kimberly Clark and Video Gaming Technologies. Thank you also to IC Bus of Oklahoma for lending the buses.
