United Way of the Piedmont Support:

"Stuff the Bus"

The “Stuff the Bus” project project provides much-needed school supplies to children within the community that may not have the ability to purchase items to begin the 2016 school year. These supplies are not only a great opportunity to assist these students but also act as added encouragement. "Stuff the Bus" allows our employees another opportunity to "Live United" by impacting our local youth. Items donated include calculators, back packs and lunch boxes in addition to a large number of basic school supplies like paper and pencils.

Our 2016 United Way program coordinator David Crosby is shown with United Way's Heather Lother.
