Packed full of school supplies for the students of Copiague School District, United Way’s Stuff-A-Bus pulled up to the district’s administrative offices on Sept. 11.
Copiague School District administrators 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 arrived. During the next week, the Builders Club, along with adviser Maria Ostrofsky, will help unpack and sort the boxes to be delivered to the different schools.
Now in its 11th year, the campaign, which gets support from donations across Long Island and corporate partnerships, helps students kickoff the school year with all the tools they need to succeed in the classroom. More than 75 boxes were filled with supplies including backpacks, pens and pencils, notebooks, lunch boxes, rulers, scissors, glue and more.
