For the sixth year in a row, the New York Giants will host their annual Stuff the Bus school supply drive, partnering with Tools 4 Schools. The drive will be held Aug. 29 at Giants Stadium when the Giants play the New York Jets.
Fans are encouraged to attend the game with new school supplies and can drop them off with the volunteers manning each stadium entrance or at the school bus located in the off-site parking lot.
All school supply donations will be given to Tools 4 Schools, Community FoodBank of New Jersey program. The supplies will go to New Jersey teachers in schools and after-school programs with a participation rate of 70 percent or more in the Free & Reduced Price lunch program.
Tools 4 Schools is in its seventh year and serves 160 schools and programs and boasts an enrollment of more than 100,000 students.
Qualifying teachers will be permitted to pick up school supplies at the program’s free store twice a year. Some of the most-needed items include writing and coloring materials, glue, notebooks, paper, rulers, stapling materials and backpacks.
