Stuff the Bus Adams County

“Stuff the Bus” is a collaborative effort of several local non-profit and government agencies, including the Adams County Community Services Program, Adams County Health and Human Services, Adams-Friendship Area School District, the Salvation Army, and United Way of Inner Wisconsin.

Every year, the Stuff the Bus Committee asks the community to actually “stuff a school bus” with donations of school supplies.   Later, the school supplies are distributed to local students in need.  All families who live in Adams County and who are in financial need are eligible; they simply need to fill out an application at the Adams County Health and Human Services office, or contact the Adams County Community Services Program.  Stuff the Bus of Adams County is a community collaboration initiative of United Way of Inner Wisconsin.
