Stuff the Bus – School Supply Drive

July 12, 2017

Tampa, Fla. – (July 11, 2017) – A bright yellow school bus will greet shoppers at retail locations throughout the county, as Hillsborough County Public Schools Transportation Department partners for a “Stuff the Bus” School supply drive.

With just one month until the start of the school year on August 10, the Transportation Department is partnering with several Walmart locations and Staples. The goal is to get enough supplies to fill 200 backpacks. Those backpacks will be distributed at the Hillsborough County Public Schools Transportation Back to School Fair on Saturday, August 5, from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. The Back to School Fair will be held at the Transportation Office at 9455 Harney Road, Thonotosassa.

The district’s transportation employees have a key role in the success of our students, ensuring they get to and from school each day safely and on time. Our drivers are the first person many of our students see each morning and the last person they see before they head home. Our drivers know the need in the community and are grateful they can do their part to ensure student success.
