It’s that time again and we are planning to make our 11th Annual Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive the best one ever! United Way of San Luis Obispo is recruiting businesses to host Workplace Collection Sites and up to 150 Volunteers are needed countywide at five bus sites to accept donations from the public and sort donations on the bus. We are inviting you (or a Team) to volunteer with United Way this summer to help us STUFF THE BUS! Volunteers are needed countywide and opportunities include: greeters, donation collectors, sorters, site coordinators and a set-up crew at each site.

Many local students and teachers are in need of the supplies necessary to begin the year successfully. Last year over 3,000 students in need received donated supplies countywide, but there were about 1,000 students still in need of supplies.

Businesses, groups, and individuals are also invited to become a Stuff the Bus sponsor (see attached Sponsorship Levels) and to apply to be a Workplace Collection Site to help provide additional locations that are convenient to employees and the public to drop off donated school supplies that students need to succeed. Join United Way of San Luis Obispo County and KSBY to help others in our community by partnering with us to ‘Stuff the Bus’.

From August 9th-11th, the following locations in SLO County will have a bus on site and will accept donations of new school supplies:

Walmart-Arroyo Grande

Staples-San Luis Obispo


Cookie Crock-Cambria

Staples-Paso Robles

Volunteer Site Coordinators and 6-7 volunteers per shift are needed to be on hand to accept and sort donations on Friday, Saturday and Sunday beginning at 10am.  There are 3 volunteer shifts available at five locations countywide:

Shift 1:  10am-12pm for set-up

Shift 2: 12pm-3pm Greeters, sorters and donation collectors

Shift 3:  3pm-6pm same as Shift 2
