Together, We Can Make a Huge Difference!
We're teaming up with United Way with a goal to help 5,000 underserved children in our local schools, as well as their teachers, by donating backpacks and school supplies before the new school year begins.
Let's Stuff the Bus with as many supplies as possible!
How You Can Get Involved
No matter where you are in the SOS Community, you can participate in Stuff the Bus! When you begin to see all those school supplies going on sale while shopping for your own kids, maybe you could pick up a few extra items?
Also, rally your church, business, or office place to get involved by coordinating a "mini-drive" to collect supplies! That way church members, employees, and customers have the opportunity to bring backpacks and supplies to an easy location they already know. You can set up a collection box or bin and even consider setting a goal!
Who Are We Helping?
We are helping kids and teachers! By equipping the kids, we're also helping the teachers.

If you don't have time go shopping, that's okay! Financial donations go a long way too! United Way of Southern Nevada has set up a special donation link where they will use the funds to purchase school supplies in bulk and supplement the items donated by the community. To give, click here.
