Communities In Schools annual Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive has benefited students throughout San Antonio for over 20 years. From mid-June through the first week of August, we collect supplies from corporate supporters and the community. We have grown from $10,000 to over $600,000 in collecting school supplies and monetary donations each year.
Due to the efforts of community supporters, thousands of local students are provided with the tools they need to be successful. The supplies are available to all students year-round at school campuses in which Communities In Schools of San Antonio serves. In addition, supplies are provided to several local youth-serving non-profits and also through a summer community giveaway hosted by the San Antonio Food Bank.
Thank you to all of our Stuff The Bus volunteers and everyone who donated school supplies for our students! We greatly appreciate your support in helping thousands of students start their school year with all the tools they need to be successful. This year, we broke our record and were able to collect 31 tons of school supplies at an estimate monetary value of $673,885! What an amazing accomplishment! We could not have done it without the help of our supporters and volunteers.
