Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive

from July 15 to August 16

More than 150,000 students in Hillsborough County Public Schools qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Many students don’t have some of the most basic supplies—paper, pencils or a backpack—they need to be organized and ready to learn.

This year, Back to School for students may look a little different because of COVID-19 restrictions. Whether learning in the classroom or from home, thousands of our highest needs students are at risk of starting the new school year without the critical supplies they need for academic success. During unprecedented times like these, support for our students is needed more than ever—there are a variety of ways you can help.

The Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive in partnership with Hillsborough Education Foundation and MIX 100.7 is now in session! Below are some of the top needed school supplies for students in Hillsborough County.
