• The Operation: Stuff the Bus Campaign is an annual outreach program co-sponsored by Marion County Public Schools Homeless Children and Youth Program and local Veteran's organizations.


    This campaign affords local residents the opportunity to make a genuine difference in a homeless /needy child's life, by donating new school supplies, children's clothes, shoes, personal hygiene items, and financial contributions.


    The donated supplies are distributed by the Homeless Children Program to the guidance offices at each school to meet the needs of our students attending those schools. This keeps all donations local and makes distribution more efficient


    Locations of the school bus at retail locations varies year to year. Watch local media reports to see when we are near you or call the Homeless Children office for details. Monetary donations may be mailed to 1517 SE 30th Ave, #5, Ocala, FL 34471.


    Make checks payable to Homeless Children Program and note the memo for Stuff the Bus. For more information please call 352-671-6847.
