Stuff the Bus with Books

Help our kids read all summer long!

Join us for United Way of Greater Cleveland’s Day of Action and help “Stuff the Bus with Books” before the Cleveland Indians take on the Chicago White Sox at Progressive Field on Saturday, June 18.

The Cleveland Indians are once again partnering with United Way to collect children’s and young adult books and put them into the hands of children in our community! It’s crucial to get books into the hands of children during the summer months to encourage reading and academic success!

Children with books from Stuff the Bus


We need your help to gather and collect books!

How does my company get involved?

What does it take to be a Collection Point?

Set out a Stuff the Bus collection box provided by United Way in your organization and ask for book donations through email, posters, signs, social media and word of mouth. Books will be picked up Wednesday, June 15. If your company or organization is interested in serving as a collection point, please contact Shanette Buford-Brazzell, events manager.

Who will the receive books?

United Way will distribute the books to Cleveland Metropolitan School District students, Club Connect schools and local libraries participating in Summer Learning programs.
