HAMLET — Richmond County Schools will hold its twelfth annual Stuff the Bus Campaign on Tuesday, August 4, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Walmart parking lot in Rockingham.

Stuff the Bus is a partnership between United Way of Richmond County, Walmart in Rockingham and Richmond County Schools.

A Richmond County Schools bus will be on site, ready to be filled with school supplies that will go to students in Richmond County.

Our mission is to provide students with the tools and supplies needed to have a successful school year. And this year’s Stuff the Bus means a lot as this is another opportunity for us to help support our families in need due to COVID-19.


Supplies will not be given out during the Stuff the Bus event but will be counted and distributed to each school based on need. Last year, we collected 32,500 supplies including notebooks, paper and pencils to give to our students.

As in the past, sponsorship opportunities are available to local businesses and individuals. Those who choose to participate will have their organization’s name featured on one of the school bus windows, windshields or hoods. We are also accepting donations.

For more information on sponsorships for Stuff the Bus, please contact Public Information Officer Jasmine Hager at 910-582-5860 or jasminehager@richmond.k12.nc.us or Michelle Parrish, executive director of United Way of Richmond County, at 910-997-2173 or michelleparrish@bellsouth.net.

To be featured on the back of the event t-shirt, please reach out by July 14.
