Last school year, more than 22,000 children were identified as homeless in San Diego County. Kids face many hardships. School supplies should not be one of them.
The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is once again partnering this summer with the San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU®) to collect thousands of dollars in online donations to purchase much-needed pencils, pens, binders, crayons, backpacks, and more during the SDCCU Stuff the Bus campaign.
This year’s Stuff the Bus campaign will be conducted solely online with no on-site collection of supplies as was done in the past. Donations are welcome in any amount; for example, $20 will cover the cost of a backpack filled with supplies for an elementary-age student, while $25 will cover the cost of a backpack and supplies for a secondary-age student.
The SDCCU Stuff the Bus campaign, which has been extended through Aug. 31, is once again partnering with local iHeartMedia radio stations Star 94.1, JAM’N 95.7, and Channel 93.3 for special appearances and live interviews.
In 2019, the Stuff the Bus campaign provided more than 6,800 backpacks filled with supplies to San Diego County students.
