days of action

stuff the bus

Summer 2021

Kids in our community need the tools and support to learn, now more than ever. That’s why we need your help to make it a success.

Join us by forming your team and helping us collect school supplies for our most underserved kids.


Here’s How You Can Help

Workplace or Community Groups: Comradery for a cause! Get together with friends, family or colleagues to host a school supply drive. Contact Megan McGuire to register your team and receive our Team Drive toolkit.

Individuals: Anyone can help! Support a student (or several) by purchasing supplies from our Amazon Wishlist, available Summer 2021. You can also make a credit card donation in any amount or Venmo us @UWNashville and write “Stuff the Bus” in the “What’s it for” section. Monetary donations will be used to buy more supplies.

Companies: Become a Days of Action sponsor. Build your brand while supporting the work of United Way through sponsorship. Sponsors will receive recognition and benefits for all three Day of Action events throughout the year.

Together, we can ensure kids have the supplies they need to start the school year ready to learn.
