The Long Island Nets are partnering with United Way of Long Island to organize the 11th annual Stuff-A-Bus campaign. The nationally renowned program is intended to help local students in low socioeconomic communities head back to school prepared with new backpacks and other essential school supplies, so they have the tools to excel in the classroom and beyond.

This year's partners include the Town of North Hempstead and several Nassau County elected officials, including Town of Hempstead Senior Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby, Councilman Anthony P. D'Esposito, Councilman Tom Muscarella, Councilwoman Erin King Sweeney, Receiver of Taxes Don Clavin, Assemblyman Ed Ra and Legislator Laura Schaefer. Target will also partner with the Long Island Nets to provide thousands of school supplies to several Town of Hempstead and Nassau County beneficiaries through the program.

The Stuff-A-Bus program provides students from low-income families with new school supplies, preparing them for their academic studies, building their self-esteem, and setting them up for success. Supplies include backpacks, lunch boxes, notebooks, pencils, crayons and scissors – items that young children require in order to excel in their studies.

Collection dates will take place from Monday, July 29 through Friday, August 30 at Drop Off Locations across Long Island.
