The Head of the Lakes United Way is sponsoring a “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive for Superior and Lake Superior school districts Aug. 1-23.

“Stuff the Bus” is a school readiness program that provides school supplies to help prepare students for school. Supplies will be delivered directly to the school districts.

“Our success depends on the generosity of community members, and the school supply drive is no exception,” President Matt Hunter said.

There are eight donation drop-off locations for the Superior district: Barkers Island Inn, BMO Harris Bank, Edward Jones/Jason Rolfe-Superior, Fen-Tech, National Bank of Commerce, Superior One, Superior Choice Credit Union and the Superior mayor's office.

For more information, visit or call the United Way at 218-726-4790.
