Helping Our Teachers Help Our Students
In 2007, United Way of Hernando County brought on the Annual Stuff the Bus program. For one weekend during the Summer, United Way of Hernando County, along with the Hernando County Transportation Department, places multiple buses throughout the community at participating locations. These school buses are manned with dedicated teachers and volunteers welcoming donated school supplies for Hernando County classrooms. This event brings much needed supplies to teachers and their students.
In 2018, UWHC provided over 165 classrooms with FREE school supplies to service Hernando County students. Part of United Way's philosophy is "Who knows better than teachers about classroom needs?" Stuff the Bus is an important component in giving teachers the tools needed to help children succeed in education!
