City Auto presents Stuff the Bus with Your Local United Way

United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties’ Stuff the Bus initiative is a community-sponsored event that provides school supplies for students in need. This year’s Stuff the Bus Collection Party will take place on Thursday, August 3rd from 11 AM – 2 PM, in MTSU’s parking lot, off Greenland Drive and Middle Tennessee Boulevard. 

The Stuff the Bus initiative has provided over 22,000 local students with school supplies since 2012. Each year the initiative gives more students the tools and confidence they need to succeed in school.  

“City Auto is honored to support United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties with Stuff the Bus. Being engaged in the communities we serve is part of our core values. It’s especially important to make a positive impact in the lives of today’s youth. If City Auto can help support efforts that remove barriers to student success, it’s one of the most meaningful ways we can give back. We all thrive when we make a child’s future brighter,” shares City Auto representative, Lynsey Freeman. 

School supplies can be dropped off at various collection sites across Rutherford County through August 2nd. For a list of collection sites, visit Additionally, you can make a purchase from United Way’s Amazon Wish List and have the items shipped directly to the United Way office. 

On August 3rd, all items will be dropped off between 11 AM – 2 PM at the Stuff the Bus Collection Party, taking place in the Middle Tennessee parking lot, off Greenland Drive and Middle Tennessee Boulevard. During this time, there will be music, games, and more fun to celebrate our community’s hard work! Volunteers will pack backpacks full of school supplies before they are distributed to Rutherford and Cannon County Schools, and Murfreesboro City Schools.  

President and CEO of United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties, Meagan Flippin discusses the impact of community sponsors and volunteers, “Sponsors and volunteers are what bring United Way’s Stuff the Bus to life. The generous contributions from sponsors allow us to offer this initiative, and the time that volunteers contribute to collecting, packing, and delivering these supplies is critical. Stuff the Bus ensures that children start back to school with the proper tools and materials. At United Way, we know how important an initiative like this is to the academic success of our youth.”
