Copiague School District was one of seven districts to receive back to school supplies thanks to United Way’s Stuff-A-Bus. A bus full of supplies pulled up to Copiague School District’s administrative building on the morning of Sept. 7 and was packed with boxes of school supplies for district students.

Thanks to collections during the summer months and support from its corporate sponsors, United Way delivered 175,000 supplies to 7,000 students across Long Island. Boxes were filled with supplies ¬which included backpacks, markers, pens and pencils, notebooks, lunch boxes, rulers, scissors, glue and more. United Way’s Stuff-A-Bus campaign is now in its 10th year. 

Copiague School District administrators, board of education members and members of the Copiague Middle School Builders Club, the junior version of the Key Club, were on hand to help unload the boxes when Educational Bus Transportation delivered the packed boxes. The Builders Club, along with adviser Maria Ostrofsky, will help unpack and sort the boxes to be delivered to the different schools in the next week.
