Grand Junction, CO The annual Stuff the Bus school supply donation drive sponsored by Townsquare Media begins Wednesday, July 6, 2022, at Mesa Mall! 

Anyone with new school supplies to donate to local children can drop them off in the white activity bus parked in the middle of Mesa Mall in Clock Court before the drive ends on Monday, Aug. 1. 

Volunteers will “unstuff” the bus at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 2, and sort the supplies into boxes for each elementary and middle school. High schools will receive all monetary donations to Stuff the Bus. Monetary donations for high schools can be made through the D51 Foundation website at

Parents who are in need of supplies can request assistance by talking to the office staff at their child’s school after the Stuff the Bus drive is completed. 

School Supply lists can be found at Some of the most in-demand school supplies include:  * Pencils and Pencil Boxes * Colored Pencils  * Markers * Crayons  * Composition Notebooks and Spiral Notebooks * Folders * Glue Sticks * Scissors * Kleenex boxes * Erasers * Headphones * Ziploc Bags

Forty-five percent of all District 51 students live in households that meet federal income requirements for free or reduced-price school meals. For many of these families, Back to School shopping can be a daunting task. Your donations can help make a difference!
