Stuff the Bus

Join United Way for Southeastern Michigan at one of our Stuff the Bus events this September to ensure that every child in Greater Detroit has the supplies they need to survive and thrive this school year! As a thank you, when you drop off your school supplies, we'll have food, games and music to entertain you. It's all part of a week-long celebration leading up to our annual Campaign Kickoff on Friday, September 27.
