Walmart is proud to sponsor the 4th annual AZTV CHANNEL 7 STUFF THE BUS Back to School Drive presented by Liberty GMC. Join us as we work to ensure Arizona children are prepared to learn!
WHY STUFF THE BUS?
75% or more students qualify for the free or reduced lunch program at 800+ Arizona schools, and there are over 650 Title1 schools in Maricopa County.
An education is one of the most important things we can give children. Having the tools to learn is what kids need to succeed. Showing these kids we believe in them can help break the cycle. The gift of a full backpack can change a kid’s life!
It is hard to believe almost a year has passed since AZTV7 stuffed over 1,600 backpacks and delivered them to students across our state. Because of our Community’s efforts, Stuff the Bus received Honorable Mention at the National Cynopsis Social Good Awards this year!

It is time, once again, for our work to begin! Stuff the Bus 2019 will be our biggest and best year yet! Our goal is to send at least 3,000 fully supplied backpacks to students for the 2019/2020 school year!!
