We put the “fun” in Fundraising!
In 2005 the very first Stuff the Bus Event happened. Local radio personality Tony Rose along with a dedicated group of volunteers literally took the cause to the streets by living inside school buses until they were completely filled with school supplies that were donated back to local kids in over 10 counties. Over the next decade plus hundreds of tons of supplies were given directly to schools, children, and families. The job though wasn’t done. The needs of those served continued to grow so Stuff the Bus had to grow with them.
Since then Stuff the Bus has evolved from a four day event and stunt to a 365 day a year foundation that strives to impact the lives of children through all of Southern Kentucky. The communities embrace the event and the message that “All Children Start the School Year on an EQUAL playing Field.”
In 2018 the Stuff the Bus Foundation was formed from the core values and work ethic that the Stuff the Bus event and the hundreds of tons of school supplies that were donated to children, families, and teachers instilled in us.
the Stuff the Bus Foundation may not literally sleep on buses anymore but we never sleep on the children of Southern Kentucky. Working year round to provide 12 months a year not just at back to school time.
From hand in hand partnerships with local businesses and civic groups for fundraising, to unique and creative events to give back like Family Fun Runs and “Turkey Drops” to feed families at the holidays to our signature July Stuff the Bus Live Event the Foundation as a whole is always ready to serve the people in need of Southern Kentucky.
