Pack the Bus

Let's impact Floyd County kids, together.

The Facts

Pack the bus is one of our longest running programs.
In 2022, we collected and distributed 45,565 items to the New Albany Floyd County Schools. Bens Bargain was a main sponsor.
We partnered with the New Albany Housing Authority for their Back to School Bash and gave away 400 school supply kits to help prepare students for their first week of school

Kids in need

We have 4,950 Students across 14 schools that are in families that need help getting their school supplies.

20+ partner churches/organizations and 6 drop sites

Let's come together as a community and empower our kids.

Join the effort

You can play a part in making sure our kids have what they need to get the most out of their education.
