School backpacks

Help Donate School Supplies in DC & Surrounding Areas

Participate in United Way NCA’s efforts to donate school supplies to middle school students in the DC community and surrounding regions by making a monetary contribution today. The United Way Stuff the Bus program will provide children in the community with a backpack full of school supplies that will help these kids meet their basic educational needs and succeed throughout their academic year.

The implications of the pandemic and the resulting distance learning that has become commonplace has put an extra strain on young students. Many children do not have access to the technology or school supplies they need to do well in school. Our Stuff the Bus program is a great way to get involved and donate school supplies to DC area students.
