2024 Stuff the Bus


A blue image with "Stuff the bus! It's time to collect school supplies!" written in the center with various school supply images surrounding the images, such as pencils, books, rulers, and more.

Let's help out Lincoln County students by stuffing the bus full of school supplies and other necessary materials that help each child get through the day. This year, our goal is to fill out both the Lincolnton and West Lincoln school resource centers with all the materials and supplies that the students and families need! From July 8 to August 8, we will be collecting materials in various locations across the county. 


We have had so many wonderful companies and organizations sign up this year, so we are closed for new Stuff the Bus locations this year! However, if you or your company do want to remain involved with United Way of Lincoln County, please consider our sponsorship page for more information!
