FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
Q: What is the United Way of Seneca County Fill the Bus Event?
A: Fill the Bus (our first of what we hope will be an annual project) is creating lasting change in our community by providing the basic supplies students attending elementary school need to start the year right. We’re asking businesses and organizations to collect the supplies and then deliver them on the day of the event. Volunteers will collect, sort, and deliver the supplies to our area schools.
Q: What supplies are most needed?
A: Crayons, erasers, glue (sticks), highlighters, loose leaf paper (wide-ruled), markers, notebooks (one subject), pencils (color & #2), pencil pouches or boxes, pens (black or blue), pocket folders, scissors (blunted), composition notebooks and tissues.
You do not need to collect all the supplies to participate!
Q: How can I donate supplies?
A: Donations are being accepted on August 17, 2016 from 10 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Prior to August 17, items may be dropped off at the United Way offices. Volunteers will be available on August 17 to pick up donations as well.
Q: How can I volunteer?
A: Volunteers are needed to move, organize & distribute supplies the day of the event (August 17, 2016). A registration form is attached.
Q: How can I donate financially?
A: Some businesses, organizations, and individuals choose to make a monetary donation to allow us to leverage dollars to purchase needed supplies. Others choose to coordinate a company drive within their office and staff.
Q: Who is eligible to receive supplies?
A: The school supplies are being collected for grades 1- 5 and will be given to each of the schools based on enrollment. The schools will determine the best way to distribute.
Q: Why are we collecting supplies?
A: Each year many community groups and others had been collecting supplies to help students in need. Our hope is to have a coordinated county-wide effort to fill this need. Research shows that when a child starts school with the tools they need they are better prepared to learn.
