Fill the Bus 2020

While not all districts will use buses this fall, they all could still use a busload of supplies. With increased needs for personal protective equipment and the challenges of a move to online learning, our schools, teachers, parents, and students need our support more than ever before. This year we are supporting students at five different local schools.

  • Capital Area Mentoring Partnership
  • East Lansing Public School District
  • Edgewood Village Network Center
  • Lansing Public School District
  • MSU Student Parent Resource Center

COVID-19 has necessitated changes to our 12th Annual Fill the Bus event. This year we will not be able to accept in-person donations. There are two options for donations. You can make a financial gift or you can visit this page and buy supplies directly for the school that matters most to you. 

Last year with your help, we were able to create 90+ bags of school supplies and deliver 95+ backpacks for school-aged children around the Greater Lansing Area. Our goal is to top that this year but without your generosity and support, this will not be possible.

Your Gift Will Make a Difference

Your donations will be able to make an impact for these students. Every donation will be divided among the five schools and programs. A donation of just $20 can be enough to provide notebooks and pencils for an entire class of students! Some more examples of how your donation might be spent.

  • $5 - 3 notebooks and a pack of pens & pencils for a student OR 5 notebooks or 10 packs of markers for the class
  • $10 – A pair of earbuds or 20 packs of colored pencils or 1 jump rope to promote physical education
  • $20 – Much needed disposable masks and disinfectant wipes OR a kids backpack
  • $50 – A brand-new adult-sized backpack OR a complete set of PPE (cloth masks, disposable masks, Clorox wipes, all-purpose cleaner, Kleenax) for a home/classroom
