This year’s Stuff the Bus event was a great success!

Stuff the Bus 2022 saw an unprecedented response from both volunteers and those in need of back-to-school resources. With the help of our wonderful community partners we were able to distribute over 800 fun backpacks with needed school supplies, gently-used back-to-school outfits and immunizations to Valley students.

THANK YOU to the many volunteers and partner agencies whose hard work made this day such a success:

• Staff of the Curtis D. Menard Center
• turn-a-leaf thrift store
• CCS Early Learning
• Youth 360
• Mat-Su Public Health

Thrive Mat-Su provided fun activities for all who attended! Thank you Thrive Mat-Su.

Many Valley businesses gave their day to volunteer as well:

  • Matanuska Valley Federal Credit Union
  • MAC Federal Credit Union
  • First National Bank of Alaska
  • Mat-Su College Student Services
  • MTA


Special thanks to our sponsors and donors for this event, especially Mat-Su Health Foundation and Conoco Phillips. We appreciate you!
