Each year, the Grove City Area United Way holds its "Stuff the Bus" program. The purpose of this program is to provide new backpacks and school supplies to children in need who reside within the Grove City Area School District community.
Please click here for information and here for an Assistance Request Form. Families must complete the Assistance Request Form to be considered for the program. Supplies are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis, so it is helpful to submit requests in a timely manner. Although we want to assist as many families as possible, there may not be enough supplies to meet all of the requests, so PLEASE submit your request as soon as possible.
The distribution process usually takes place the week prior to the first day of school. Families requesting assistance will receive more information after a completed request is received. NOTE: The fact that you submit the request form does not guarantee that we will be able to provide your children with school supplies.
Donations of new back packs, school supplies and monetary donations are welcome and can be brought to our office at 119 S. Broad Street, Grove City, PA.
Since beginning the program in our community in 2008, the GCAUW has given out over 1,400 backpacks filled with supplies.
Thank you to the volunteers and contributors that made it possible to meet all of the requested needs thus far
with backpacks and supplies left over for next year as well!
