The United Way’s Stuff-A-Bus Campaign helps to provide area youth in need with the supplies they need to begin the school year.

“As the result of last year’s Stuff-A-Bus campaign we were able to serve approximately 1,600 families throughout Oswego County. This year, with the support of caring businesses and community members we are hoping to serve even more Oswego County students,” said Melanie Trexler, executive director of United Way of Greater Oswego County.

Made possible through a partnership with United Way, school districts throughout Oswego County and more than 20 business and organizations, the Stuff-A-Bus Campaign seeks to collect donations of school supplies for distribution to less fortunate students throughout Oswego County.
