Reading Hospital 'Stuff The Bus' Campaign Supports Reading School District

West Reading, PA., September 3, 2019 - Reading Hospital is partnering with United Way for the ninth consecutive year to coordinate the 2019 Stuff the Bus - Adopt a Classroom campaign for Reading School District. A total of 105 classrooms and 24 school nurses were adopted by Reading Hospital departments for Glenside Elementary, Millmont Elementary, Tyson-Schoener Elementary, and all Reading Area School District Nurses. Team members at Reading Hospital assemble "dream boxes" for each classroom, consisting of supplies teachers and school nurses frequently purchase on their own to support student learning and health.

On Wednesday, September 4, two school buses will travel to all participating sites for employees to "Stuff the Bus" with their donations. The buses will be at Reading Hospital Clock Tower from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Buses then stop at each school, where Reading Hospital's Magnet Champion Team, who coordinated the event, will deliver donations to the school faculty. The buses will arrive at Glenside Elementary at 12:30 p.m., Tyson-Schoener Elementary at 1:15 p.m., and Millmonnt Elementary at 2:30 p.m.
