Help us Stuff the Bus with Garber Chevrolet!

For the third year in a row, our friends at Garber Chevrolet in Midland will be hosting a Stuff the Bus donation drive to collect supplies for early childhood programs throughout Midland County.

Stuff the Bus supports Midland County’s Great Start Readiness Program, Head Start and Early Childhood Special Education – programs offered by the Midland County Educational Service Agency in collaboration with many early childhood partners. In all, 30 classrooms in seven locations, as well as three different food pantries, will benefit from the donation drive.

As we have each year, DCECU and our employees will be making a contribution to Stuff the Bus. And this year, we invite our members to be a part of the community giving!

Now through Wednesday, August 22, you can drop off items for Stuff the Bus in the DCECU lobby, and we will deliver all donations from the credit union to the bus at Garber on Friday, August 24. Here are the primary items being collected:

School Supplies Nonperishable Food Items
Backpacks Cereal/oatmeal/granola bars
Wide-rule spiral notebooks Peanut butter
White printer paper Fruit snacks
Kids’ scissors Crackers (e.g., Goldfish or Cheez-Its)
Crayons Canned fruits and vegetables
Markers (regular and dry-erase) Soups/sauces
Glue sticks Noodles/pasta (including macaroni and cheese)
Pencils Instant potatoes/rice
Pencil boxes Stuffing
Rulers Juice
Stickers Pudding/Jell-O cups

Thank you for being a part of this important event to benefit kids in our community!
