Your kids wish summer would never end, but we know the parents out there are looking forward to the kiddos heading back to school. When they do, no kid in Central Texas should have to worry that they won't have the supplies they need to succeed.

That's where generous Central Texans come in.

Stuff the Bus 2022

It's time to Stuff the Bus for Central Texas kids! We want to fill an entire school bus with supplies, and we've partnered up with local businesses to help make it happen.

How Can I Help?

We've placed donation boxes at every one of the awesome local businesses below. Our hope is that the good people of Central Texas will pick up a few extra school supplies while shopping for back-to-school this year and donate to this worthy cause.

Supplies collected will benefit kids in Killeen, Belton, and Temple ISDs.

Don't Forget About the Tax-Free Weekend

By the way, this year's Tax Free Holiday in Texas is August 5-7, which would be a great time to stock up on supplies for your kiddos while grabbing a few extra to help local families in need. In case you're new to Texas, it's an entire weekend during which you won't be charged sales tax on certain school supplies and clothing. You can find more info on the holiday here.

Thank You

Thanks so much to our local sponsors and to you, Central Texas. Every year you help us make this a fantastic drive to benefit local kids, and even though family budgets are tight this year, we know you'll come through again.
