It was a banner year for Heart of West Michigan United Way's campaign to Stuff the Bus!

The Stuff the Bus project is a way to help students in need have the school supplies they might not be able to buy, and this year was super successful.
This year, 39,087 school supplies valued at $48,882 was collected for Grand Rapids Public Schools students and teachers. That is huge and the community and especially the partners and participating companies deserve a big round of applause!
