What: 

We are gearing up for our biggest collection drive of the year - School Supplies! In 2023, we were able to send supplies to a classroom in every public school district in Muskegon, Newaygo, and Oceana Counties. These supplies helped fill classrooms, went to students in need, and supported the learning environment needed for our students to succeed.

This year, we are asking for teacher nominations from our classrooms! Teachers will be determined and selected by a volunteer committee and recognized as Distinguished Lakeshore Educators! Make sure you submit your favorite teacher for a chance to have their classroom stocked for the school year! 

Stuff the Bus is important to our community because it supports our youth by providing them the tools necessary to receive a high-quality education and relieves the stress of back-to-school shopping for our struggling families. Did you know that in America, the average family spends $697 per child in back-to-school shopping?
 
Locally, that is close to our average mortgage rate. That means if a family is struggling to make ends meet, back to school shopping can cause a serious dilemma.
