CIS-SA 2020 Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive

This year, the Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive went virtual!  Due to COVID-19, workplaces were not yet at full capacity, social distancing limited large volunteer gatherings and precautions are in place to minimize contact.  Therefore, instead of accepting school supply donations, we raised money for each of our schools so they have the funds to purchase school supplies, uniforms, and technology for our students.  Although there were a few detours this year, our commitment to providing free school supplies to thousands of underserved students remained the same. 


The 2020 Stuff The Bus fundraiser drive ended on August 31st. However, if you're interested in making a donation to support our students, please visit.

For over 20 years, the Communities In Schools of San Antonio Stuff The Bus (STB) School Supply Drive has helped thousands of students and families in need.  During the 2020-2021 school year, the STB supplies will be distributed to over 100 San Antonio area schools (elementary-high school) across 12 school districts.  This allows all students at each campus to have access to free school supplies throughout the school year. Each time you participate in the Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive, you entrust Communities In Schools of San Antonio to direct your gifts to where they are needed most. This includes, but it not limited to, the purchase of school supplies, technology and uniforms needed by our students, such as, but not limited to, the representative items on this website.
