UNION COUNTY — It’s that time of year again! United Way of Greater Union County (UWGUC) is collecting school supplies from its corporate partners, and their employees, to create “Ready-to-Learn” backpacks filled with school supplies for school-age students.
The “Stuff-the-Bus” Campaign will run through the end of August. Corporate partners display ingeniously designed boxes that resemble a school bus. The “school bus” boxes are then placed in highly visible locations in participating workplace offices or businesses. Employees are encouraged to drop in donations of school supplies and/or back packs.
Many of UWGUC partners have already started, including, C.R. Bard, Comcast, Enterprise Rent A Car, Hayward Industries, Hub International, Plymouth Rock, Provident Bank, Roselle Savings Bank, Spencer Savings Bank, Stop & Shop, Target, Genewiz, Cintas, AHM, Michael Foods, Linde North America, Total Lubricants, USA, Macy’s, and IBM Global.
“The boxes are a creative and fun way of asking our partners to participate in helping families meet the educational needs of their children. Many of these families find it hard to buy school supplies and this campaign really makes a difference to our families most in need,” states James W. Horne, President/CEO, UWGUC.
