Stuff A Bus with United Way deemed successful

GREENVILLE — The Darke County United Way recently concluded its Stuff A Bus School Supply Drive. On behalf of the staff and board of directors, they would extend a heartfelt thank you to the Darke County community for its support of this effort.

“In 2021, they collected a little over $9,600 worth of school supplies. Our goal for 2022 was to collect $10,000 in supplies to give our community’s children the tools to succeed and learn,” stated Darke County United Way Executive Director Becca Cotterman. “School supplies and fees are a financial hardship for many families throughout Darke County. It was crucial that we collect as much as possible this year for our local students. We are happy to announce that we collected $10,651.24 worth of school supplies this year. We are so grateful for everyone who helped us reach our goal. We couldn’t have done it without you!”

Students from the Blue Angels 4-H group spent nearly three hours sorting, counting, and then dividing the school supplies.

Stuff A Bus benefits children in the following school districts: Ansonia, Arcanum, Bradford, Franklin Monroe, Greenville, Mississinawa Valley, Tri Village, Versailles, and Anthony Wayne. Each school district has received over $1,000 worth of school supplies for their students.

For those who would still like to donate, they encourage you to donate to your local school district directly.
