Donate to STB!

Since 2005, Stuff the Bus Foundation has  made sure that Southern Kentucky children walk in on the first day of school with an equal playing field and the essential supplies needed to be able to connect with the teacher and their classmates. 

Now, we are able to help college graduates with scholarships through our WKU Stuff the Bus Scholarship Fund and are able to continue providing a path for children to succeed from kindergarten thru higher education.

Announcement: Summer Internships now available!

Stuff the Bus Foundation

Since 2005, the Stuff the Bus Foundation has altered the lives of children and families throughout Warren County and South Central Kentucky. Stuff the Bus is a community event that focuses on meeting the school supply needs of school-age children to ensure that every child starts the school year the same way. The goal is to give every child the same first day of school experience, regardless of background, home life, or economic status.

Each year community members come together to provide everything from basic school supplies to sports equipment and clothing to tremendous monetary donations, all used to help area children and the schools they attend. and the amazing staff of the event to champion this worthwhile cause.

Each year volunteers raise major awareness for Stuff the Bus and are now inseparably tied to the heartwarming event. Stuff the Bus has become a community staple to symbolize the start of the back to school season for families, teachers, and schools. Stuff the Bus also brings the surrounding areas of Southern Kentucky on board to help over 10 counties and 20 after school programs prepare in their own unique ways with events in each community. Since 2005 the growth of the event can be directly tied to the community we serve. Now with the addition of our WKU Stuff the Bus Scholarship Fund we continue to provide a path for children to succeed from kindergarten thru higher education.

Stuff the Bus Scholarship Awards

Thanks to the visionary leadership and massive community support the event has received, we have created the Stuff the Bus Scholarship Fund to enable the same kids they helped through K-12 attain their dreams of post-secondary education. This scholarship fund is designed to offer assistance to complete the entire education cycle. Through this new fund, Stuff the Bus will continue to help deserving students and impact lives in an even greater capacity than ever before. 

Time will tell the future of the Stuff the Bus annual promotional event, but we are excited that this Stuff the Bus Scholarship Fund will exist in perpetuity and provide encouragement and assistance to a countless number of students for generations to come.

Generating New Ideas. Solving Big Problems

Every Year children in our community start the school year without the supplies they need for school. To compensate many teachers pay out of their own pocket to try to provide for the children in their school where  families can not. Here at Stuff the Bus we want to give all children the advantage of a good start.
