Stuff the Bus 2021 School Supply Drive was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who supported this effort.

We are no longer accepting physical school supplies however if you would like to contribute financially please use this link. Additional funds raised will be used to purchase additional school supplies needed throughout the school year.

For additional school supply support, please email Nicole DiMichele, Deputy Director – nicole@cisseattle.org


The annual Stuff the Bus school supply drive allows CISS to partner with local businesses and organizations like yours to ensure Seattle students have the supplies they need for a successful 2021-2022 school year.

Your donations help relieve the costly burden placed on teachers and families each year and will impact over 5,000 students in the schools CISS serves.

Thank you so much for participating this year.

Collection Day is Friday, August 20!

Please reach out to Emily Slagle, Development Director eslagle@cisseattle.org for information on location and time.

Below are ways to support and take action.

CISS has identified specific items most needed for the school year. We appreciate your support in purchasing NEW school supplies for students at Aki Kurose Middle School, Denny International Middle School, Madison Middle School, and South Shore Pk-8.

We want to be mindful of our students and the joy that comes from receiving newly purchased items so we will not be able to accept used office supplies or items with company logos.
