You can help AZTV7 “STUFF THE BUS”!

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement


 When school rolls around each August, the gift of a full backpack can change a kid’s life.

Join AZTV7 for the 3rd annual STUFF THE BUS Back to School Drive…..and help AZTV7 ensure Arizona children are prepared to learn!


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 nearly 1,000 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 2018 is guaranteed to be bigger and better! Our goal is to send 1,500 fully supplied backpacks to students for the 2018/2019 school year!!

From now until July 27th, drop off your donation of school supplies or backpacks filled with school supplies at our AZTV7 Studios, or to the following locations:
