Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive & Back To School Bash

August 1 & August 8, 2021

Join Family Giving Tree at Westfield Oakridge for their Stuff the Bus School Supply Donation Drive - supporting local students!

While many students eagerly begin the school year with a new backpack filled with school supplies, thousands of kids in our community will not have some of the most basic supplies they need to succeed in school— like pencils and paper. Supplies have been depleted during the pandemic and your support is needed more than ever. You can get involved and help erase the need for our most vulnerable students in Santa Clara County. The Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive in partnership with Family Giving Tree is now in session!

Below are the top 20 most needed school supplies for students in Santa Clara County. All items can be dropped off in the center at our donation box at Macy's Court on August 1 & 8. While you are here to shop for school supplies for your family, grab some extras to help local students who are in need. Your generosity can positively impact a student’s life, an entire classroom and the future of our community.
