Thank you for making this year's fundraiser a success!

CIS-SA Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive

The Communities In Schools of San Antonio annual Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive provides free school supplies to thousands of underserved students and families throughout the school year.  This year, the Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive will continue to be a virtual fundraiser.  As our community emerges from the pandemic, workplaces are not yet at full capacity, large volunteer gatherings are limited, and precautions are still in place.  Therefore, instead of accepting school supply donations, we are raising money for each of our schools so they have the funds to purchase school supplies, uniforms, and technology for our students.  Join us to support thousands of underserved students within our community!
