United Way of Monmouth County and Quality 1st Basement Systems partnered for their annual "Stuff the Bus" campaign, which raises school supplies for children in need.
Cliffwood, NJ - August 13, 2015
Quality 1st Basement Systems helped United Way of Monmouth County with their annual “Stuff the Bus” campaign. “Stuff the Bus” helps children that cannot afford school supplies get the notebooks, backpacks, pencils and other supplies that they need for another year of learning. Last year United Way gave to over 18,900 children throughout Monmouth county.
The Quality 1st Basement Systems office in Cliffwood, New Jersey collected supplies that were picked up, and ready to be given out before the school year begins. Working alongside their sister company Basement Systems in Connecticut, the “Stuff the Bus” campaign was a success receiving donations made through the online site Roonga and from the office drop off location. Dixon Ticonderoga Beginner’s pencils were difficult to find, but Quality 1st delivered.
United Way of Monmouth County lost their sponsorship with Target and could not use the store as a drop-off space for people to donate supplies any longer. They did not reach their projected goal for 2015. Upon hearing this, owner of Quality 1st Basement Systems Tom Roman wrote a check for United Way to purchase the rest of the supplies that they needed.
In December, United Way is sponsoring a Warmest Wishes drive, which will collect winter clothing for children so they can enjoy a warm holiday season. Quality 1st Basement Systems is excited to partner with them for another chance to help the community. Company owner Tom Roman said about the partnership with United Way of Monmouth County, "Helping our children is the best way to help our community. We plan to make every donation campaign a huge success."
