United Way’s Stuff The Bus

Story and Photography by Eric Lusk

United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties’ Stuff the Bus is a community effort to ensure that children in our community have the supplies and confidence needed for a successful school year. Over the past few months, businesses from throughout the area have been collecting school supply items that will go to thousands of children in Rutherford and Cannon counties. A call is then put out for volunteers to meet at First Baptist Church on East Main Street in Murfreesboro to help pack these items. 

The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties improves lives by advancing opportunities for education, health and financial stability for all. United Way recruits people and organizations who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done through giving, advocating and volunteering.
