Stuff the Bus

School Supplies are being collected at Lock 3 this summer on July 18th from 4:30-9:30pm.

United Way of Summit County’s Stuff the Bus” initiative is making a stop at Elevate Akron, a global convergence of Yoga which is descending on Akron At Lock 3 this summer!

Elevate Akron

“Elevate Akron is a non-profit organization that aims to ignite love, light and giving in the greater Akron by hosting community yoga events and serving local charitable causes. Elevate Akron was founded in 2015 with the goal of creating a movement that celebrated and elevated Akron by bringing together the entire yoga community. Today, Elevate Akron is Akron’s largest yoga event, attracting thousands of yogis to their festivals each summer.  “

I just received the information below from the team at Elevate Akron:

All you have to do is shop, bring your supplies, and drop them off at the bins near our registration tables on event day!

The new school supplies you donate will help kids at Akron Public Schools students in grades K-6 start the school year ready to learn with the items they need. Below you will find a list of needed (and accepted) items:

• Pens (black or blue)
• #2 pencils with erasers
• Large erasers
• Crayons (standard 24 ct.)
• Markers (standard 12 ct.)
• Folders
• Glue sticks (standard size, no jumbos)
• Notebook paper (wide-ruled)
• Plastic pencil cases or pencil pouches

This year United Way’s goal is to serve every student in all 28 Akron Public Elementary Schools — and we hope to be a big part of that success!

Nice job everybody who is working to support our children, our schools, and our future!
