Stuff The Bus – How You Can Help

The Stuff the Bus wheels are turning as the summer is underway. The success of this event will ultimately give thousands of students and teachers in Lakeland, and the surrounding community schools, the extra boost to get through the start of the school year with much-needed school supplies.
Stuff the Bus is not only Lakeland’s Hottest Summer Event it is also the largest back-to-school campaign of its kind in Central Florida.
As school looks to open in the first part of August, Stuff the Bus will once again make a significant difference in the lives of those children we serve with your help and support. 

The priority for June is securing drop box locations. Boxes will be distributed during the last week of the month. If you have a business, know a business, or place of worship, or doctor’s office, etc., that would like to join us on the bus this year please contact us at 407-947-2912. 

On August 5th, we will need volunteers to load boxes and drivers to ensure the success of Stuff the Bus 2024 (more to come on this later so save the date).
Once the products we have purchased, along with the donated items have been unloaded, we will begin to load Kiwanian’s vehicles for delivery to the 28 schools we serve. Seeing this event come to life on August 5th is not to be missed and we encourage all members and community servants to take part.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible charitable contribution, use this link or mail a check to the Lakeland Kiwanis Charitable Foundation, P.O. Box 5146, Lakeland, FL 33807.
The children of our community need your support, and the Lakeland Kiwanis Club needs your help in making Stuff the Bus come to life on August 5th. Together we will be the difference-maker in the lives of those who truly need a little support to get through every school day.


Each year, the Kiwanis Club of Lakeland gives scholarships to deserving High School Students in the Community under the guidance of the Polk Education Foundation.
A luncheon is held in their honor in May of each year. 
Learn more about this scholarship and other opportunities through PEF.
