Stuff the Bus Book Drive

United Way of the National Capital Area is calling on the community to help provide 5,000 NEW books to ensure low-income middle school students have access to the grade-appropriate books they need to advance their reading skills and improve academic outcomes. Books collected will benefit our community schools across the region. Join us and make a difference today in the lives of students.
