SDCCU Stuff the Bus Media Coverage
Students face many hardships—school supplies should not be one of them. That’s why SDCCU has partnered with the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) and iHeartMedia radio stations in support of Live Well San Diego to collect school supplies for students experiencing homelessness.
More than 22,000 school-age children were identified as homeless during the last school year. Homelessness for school-age children can mean living in a shelter, sharing a residence with multiple families, living in a car or trailer in San Diego County or sharing a room in an apartment with relatives. Homelessness is not limited to urban, downtown San Diego—it affects suburban school districts all over the county.
Everyone is encouraged to drop off supplies at any of the numerous locations in the community, including the convenient SDCCU branch locations in San Diego County. Two SDCCU Stuff the Bus school buses will also be on tour throughout San Diego County, along with iHeartMedia San Diego radio stations Star 94.1, Channel 93.3, JAM’N 95.7 and KOGO AM 600 through July 31, making periodic stops to collect supplies. Donations can also be made at participating Walmart locations July 9-31. For a complete list of drop sites, to find tour dates and locations or to donate online, visit sdccu.com/stuffthebus.
