Stuff the Bus

Giveaway 8 278x300 - Stuff the Bus

Backpack Giveaway at Bethesda United Methodist Church

Supplies have been collected, backpacks assembled and the August 4th giveaway events have rolled out to make sure that students throughout Williamson County are prepared for the new school year!

The annual Stuff the Bus program – led by United Way of Williamson County’s Patricia Hart Society in collaboration with Publix Super Markets, GraceWorks Ministries and dedicated community organizations and churches across Williamson County – provides students with backpacks filled with school supplies donated by individuals, companies and organizations.

This year, these efforts provided 2,480 backpacks filled with supplies valued at an estimated $136,000 to kids in Williamson County.

Thank you to the many companies and groups that organized supply collections. We thank the hard-working volunteers who sorted, counted, packed and delivered supplies and backpacks. We’re grateful for all of our community neighbors who gladly purchased and donated items to make sure all students had what they needed for school.

If you are interested in getting involved with next year’s Stuff the Bus, please contact Debby Rainey at or 615-771-2312, ext. 13.

Special thanks to our supporters!
