Stuff The Bus 2023!

Join us at Staples Owen Sound from Thursday, August 17th to Saturday, August 19th for our Stuff The Bus event, and help us make a difference in the lives of local students. Our goal is to fill a bus with school supplies for The Backpack Program, and we need your help!

You can contribute by donating school supplies or making a financial donation to The Backpack Program. Your contribution will go a long way in helping children in our community receive the tools they need for a successful school year.

The event will take place at the Staples parking lot, conveniently located at 1077 10th Street West in Owen Sound. We will be there to collect donations and answer any questions you may have.

Here are the event hours:

  • Thursday, August 17th: 9 am to 7 pm
  • Friday, August 18th: 9 am to 7 pm
  • Saturday, August 19th: 9 am to 5 pm

Since 2005, the United Way Bruce Grey has been dedicated to supporting local students. We have distributed over 32,808 backpacks throughout Bruce and Grey Counties. In 2022, we were able to distribute a record-breaking 2,361 backpacks, thanks to the generosity of our donors.

By participating in our Stuff The Bus event, you are directly contributing to the success and education of children in our community. Together, we can make a difference and ensure that every student has the necessary supplies to thrive in school.

We are grateful for the donation of school supplies.  Staples will have a list of the required school supplies that we need or please see the list below.
