Stuff The Bus
The Angel Fund is pleased to announce its 16th Annual Stuff the Bus school supply drive. Stuff the Bus is a collaboration between The Angel Fund, First Student Bus Company and Helena churches, businesses, service clubs and agencies collecting school supplies throughout the summer for Students In Need!
Did you know that the average cost per year for a child's school supplies in elementary school is $70-$80 and between $90-$100 for middle school and high school? This cost often results in parents having to choose between clothes, supplies and considerations for extra-curricular activities. Stuff the Bus helps to level the playing field for school children in Helena and surrounding areas who would otherwise be unable to afford the basic necessities so essential to academic success.

To donate...

In lieu of school supplies this year, Angel Fund will again be giving monetary grant assistance to schools in the Helena area to purchase school supplies. Donations for students in need are even more important than ever. Our goal is to help 1400 students by raising over $50,000.
In lieu of purchasing school supplies, you can NOW give on-line through PayPal for Stuff the Bus school supplies this fall. Please press the button below and specify Stuff the Bus in your donation comments.
You can also mail a check to: PO Box 7436, Helena, MT 59604. Please make out checks to the Angel Fund. Or stop by Valley Bank and make a deposit in our “Stuff the Bus” matched account.
Again this year, Valley Bank will be generously sponsoring a matching grant of up to $5,000 for donations collected at their banks - we are so thankful for their partnership!
The Stuff the Bus campaign this year will run June 15th through August 5th. Grants to schools will be distributed the week of August 8th. Thank you for your continued support of our Helena area students for 16 years!
(All monetary donations and supplies are tax deductible)
