Get ready to Stuff the Bus for local kids

We are excited to once again be involved in a Springfield community project to provide school children with new backpacks and school supplies to get them ready for a great start to the new school year. 

This year’s Stuff the Bus event at CoxHealth will be held Thursday, July 25. The school bus will be stopped at Cox South from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., and at Cox North from 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. 

You can make a difference to give school children in Springfield a great start to the school year by collecting a backpack and filling it with school supplies on the list below. Then, look for the big yellow “Stuff the Bus” school bus parked on the Cox South and Cox North campuses July 25. 

Supplies to bring to provide one child with a backpack full of school supplies include:

School box
Crayons (24 count)
Glue sticks (2)
Glue Bottle
Spiral notebook
Pocket folders (3)
Composition notebook

Last year, CoxHealth provided more backpacks than any other participant and we want to once again show our community what our value of compassion is all about! Join us for “Stuff the Bus” Thursday, July 25. See you there!
