Students Who Make Us Smile

In it’s 8th year, United Way of Long Island’s annual Stuff-A-Bus program partnered with four Long Island bus transportation companies (Suffolk Transportation Service, Educational Bus Transportation, Huntington Coach Corporation, East End Bus Lines) to collect and deliver a record 150,000 school supplies from companies, organizations and individuals across Long Island to more than 6,000 local elementary school students.

The Stuff-A-Bus program provides students from low-income families with new school supplies, preparing them for their academic studies, building their self-esteem, and setting them up for success. Supplies include backpacks, lunch boxes, notebooks, pencils, crayons and scissors – items that young children require in order to excel in their studies.

Supplies were delivered to eight school districts: Copiague, Wyandanch, South Huntington, Central Islip, Brentwood, Freeport, South Country and William Floyd.

Administration, teachers, and students from Lauretta Park Elementary School in Brentwood took the time to write thank you notes, expressing their gratitude for these supplies. You can view these letters, and drawings below. These letters don’t belong to only United Way – they are meant for everyone who donated and collected supplies that allow these children to write and draw these letters.
