Stuff the Bus

Stuff the Bus


Our Stuff the Bus fundraiser in Great Bend was a huge success, filling 2 school buses along with over $200.00 in cash.  We hope that the events in Larned and Ellinwood are just as successful. 


The premise of Stuff the Bus is to have a School Bus at local businesses in the community in order to collect much needed items from the generous residents in our area. We will have two locations in Larned this year at Shopko and at Dillons from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Thursday August 28th.  

The entire month of September you can drop off items at Sunflower Bank in Ellinwood

The United Way is partnering with Ellinwood, Great Bend and Larned school districts to provide our local communities with much needed items for our 19 agencies.  Our goal is to fill the bus!



Let’s fill that bus!!


99% stays in our community and helps 19 agencies!


If you would like to volunteer, please contact the United Way office at 620-792-2403. We would love your help! Get your friends, family and school involved!! If you want to give in Ellinwood take your donations to Sunflower Bank and the employees will get the items to United Way.
