The Stuff the Bus Foundation announces its plan of events for summer 2020, starting with the Bluegrass Cellular “Classroom Expanded” Kickoff Tour and leading to the 15th Annual Stuff the Bus Foundation Live Event presented by Logan Aluminum.

Bluegrass Cellular “Classroom Expanded” & Stuff the Bus Kickoff Tour

Bluegrass Cellular enters into their 15th year as part of Stuff the Bus with their “Classroom Expanded” project. Starting June 22, 2020, teachers can be nominated on the Bluegrass Cellular website to receive a $500 Classroom Expanded Grant from Bluegrass Cellular and Stuff the Bus. The winning teachers will be selected at the Stuff the Bus Live Event on July 25.

The Stuff the Bus Foundation will also be visiting Bluegrass Cellular locations in numerous counties in July to promote various Stuff the Bus Foundation events in their stores.

Summer of Giving

The Houchens Industries 2020 “Summer of Giving” kicks off on July 1 in more than twenty different Houchens locations in Southern Kentucky. Customers can purchase in-store “mobiles” to support Stuff the Bus. These donations entirely benefit the local community in which they are given. Last year, Houchens donated more than $15,000 to local school systems in Logan, Barren, Grayson, Butler, Edmonson, Simpson, and Warren through the Summer of Giving program.

“We are so grateful for our partnership with Stuff the Bus,” said Stephanie Austin, employee at Houchens Industries and Stuff the Bus Foundation board member. “Since 2017, Houchens Industries has donated over $50,000 to the Stuff the Bus Foundation that has gone back to local kids, teachers, and schools.”

15th Annual Stuff the Bus Foundation Live Event

15th Annual Stuff the Bus Foundation LIVE EVENT presented by Logan Aluminum will take place Saturday, July 25 at Bluegrass Cellular on Campbell Lane in Bowling Green.

The Live Event will begin at 6 am and run until 6 pm that evening. It will again this year be broadcast on Facebook Live and feature guests from the community, along with a live “donation center” where community members can call and make monetary donations to the Stuff the Bus Foundation.

Community members will be allowed to make donations to “Stuff the Bus” on-site as well. There will be contactless drop off spots, and all supplies will be properly cleaned before being placed on a bus.

“One hundred% of everything we collect stays in southern Kentucky and is tax-deductible,” Rose said. “Everything we collect will go right back to kids locally, thanks to our partnership with Logan Aluminum.”
