Each year, the United Way of St. Lucie County hosts a Stuff the Bus event. It is a one day push for the collection of school supplies at all local Walmart locations. This year the event will be held on July 20th from 9 AM – 3 PM. It is a great opportunity to come out and volunteer!
Volunteers serve in 2 hour shifts at the Walmart of their choosing. The volunteers help pass out flyers to the patrons, collect the supplies and donations, and count the supplies as they come in. Every volunteer receives a Live United t-shirt to wear at the event. Last year we collected over 5,000 items and approximately $2,000 in donations.

United Way utilizes these supplies in our Tools for School St. Lucie Program. Tools for Schools, for short, is a free teacher resource store where teachers can come and shop for the supplies needed by students in their classrooms.
