Beginning July 6th, Houchens and Bluegrass Cellular team up for the “Houchens Month of Giving” where we ask you to show your support for the Stuff the Bus Foundation.

During this event, guest’s visiting any of the Houchens locations to purchase a Bluegrass Cellular mobile phone have the option to purchase a pledge of their support in the amount of $1, $5, and $20 (respectively), and then proudly sign their names to each bus to be displayed on the walls and windows of  55 Houchens Industries locations over 15 counties in Southern Kentucky including Crossroads IGA, PriceLess IGA, IGA Express, and many more! Houchens gives 100% of the proceeds to Stuff the Bus, keeping your money 100% local.

Thank you Southcentral Kentucky for all of your support as we continue to provide essentials for our children in the local community! In the last 13 years we have collected 25 Tons of school supplies and served children in over 12 counties and counting! All thanks to people like you and our local support!
