During the past school year, Solano County’s schools identified more than 1,500 homeless students. These young people may be unaccompanied and couch-surfing from home to home, living on the streets, in shelters, or staying temporarily with family or friends due to a loss of housing and/or financial problems.
To assist local homeless youth, the Solano County Office of Education, Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, Educational Partnership Foundation of Solano, and Travis Credit Union branches throughout Solano County are supporting the Regional Stuff the Bus campaign.
Solano County youth, of all ages, are in need of new: backpacks (please no solid blue or red colors), alarm clocks, lunch bags, binders, binder dividers, pencils, colored pencils, erasers, paper, highlighters, crayons, glue sticks, pencil sharpeners, flashcards, notebooks, pencil pouches, rulers, calculators, and clothing store gift cards.
Donations will be collected Monday, July 1 through Friday, August 2, at the following locations:
