Fill the Bus

Help out the youth of the Lorain County community and 'Fill the Bus' to support students going back to school this fall! 

Below are lists of high-need (sometimes unexpected) items that they are expected to bring on their first day of school. These supplies often need to be replenished throughout the year, so we want them to have one less thing to worry about. Please consider sponsoring a set of school supplies in one of the categories below! 

If you purchase on Amazon (wish lists linked below), items can be delivered directly to our office by choosing "United Way" as the shipping location. Otherwise you can drop them off between 8am-4:30pm M-F at our office: 642 Broadway Ave, Lorain, OH. or deiliver at any of these local drop-off locations


For additional impact if you are purchasing supplies via Amazon, use and choose “United Way of Greater Lorain County” and .5% of your purchase will be donated by Amazon.
