Fill the Bus

Join In And Help Us Fill the Bus For The Children Of Lorain County!

Annually we take time to focus on the school supply needs of the children of Lorain County.  We feel it’s important to focus on education by making it easier for our children to return to school well equipped without the worry of not having the school supplies they need to succeed.   We also feel that this year it’s even more important, given the challenges so many are facing due to the effects of COVID-19.  The need is much greater.

County-wide, companies and organizations take part in our annual Fill the Bus School Supply Collection by donating items that are challenging to obtain or items that need to be replenished throughout the year, by hosting a collection.  Afterwards, the items are distributed directly to Lorain County elementary school educators who will distribute to the children.


Last year, we collected 18,441 items that were distributed to 35 elementary schools across Lorain County.  Let’s make this year’s Fill the Bus School Supply Collection even greater and show the kids your support by hosting an on-site or online school supply collection.   We hope you’ll join in!
