Stuff the Bus -For the 10th year, RRBB participated in the Somerset County “Stuff the Bus” program run by the United Way of Northern NJ. The ‘Stuff the Bus’ program helps low-income families in our communities. The donations from this program provide necessary school supplies that can be a financial hardship. As a result, children are better prepared for success in school each year.
Donations vary from pens and pencils to book bags and lunch boxes. Last year, employees at 66 local companies – along with civic organizations, community groups, and individuals – donated more than $79,00 worth of school supplies that were distributed to children in need at 44 schools. Allison Valdes coordinates RRBB’s efforts here and says, “This is a great program the United Way runs, and we are proud to and will continue to support this to help kids learn.”
