Support Needy Students For the Holidays With PCSD Stuff the Bus

In the spirit of giving back during the holiday season, the Parma City School District in conjunction with the Parma Area Family Collaborative will be holding the first annual “PCSD Stuff the Bus” campaign in December to benefit needy students and families in our three communities.

The “PCSD Stuff the Bus” campaign is simple - anyone in Northeast Ohio is invited to donate unwrapped new or gently used toys and youth clothing. Non-perishable food items and monetary donations will also be accepted. Everything collected during this drive will be donated to the Parma Area Family Collaborative to be distributed to needy families throughout the holidays.

Donations will be accepted at the Parma City School District Transportation Department on Friday, December 16 from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM and Saturday, December 17 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The PCSD Transportation Department is located at 7600 Day Drive, right next to Byers Field in Parma. A Parma City School District school bus will be parked near the street along with a PCSD employee to collect donations during these times.

PCSD students, families and staff will be able to make donations at any Parma City School District school building through December 16.
