UNITED WAY OF BUCKS COUNTY
 

When a child starts school with a backpack full of the supplies they need, they can focus on what really matters – learning.

United Way’s Stuff the Bus is our community-wide school supply drive for children in need. When families are struggling to pay rent and put food on the table, school supplies are often out of reach. With your help, we can give students the tools – and confidence – that they need to excel in the classroom.

This year the focus is on getting enough backpacks for children to have in September. Checks and other monetary contribultions are also an immense help. The financial donations enable the United Way to get the best deals on educational supplies.

THEMES

This year's overarching theme is

Reimagining the Common Good

This requires looking at society and ourselves because the common good is always in competition with individual needs and interests. The “letter” of the common good includes fundamental rights and freedoms but the "spirit" of the common good presupposes every person's inherent worth and dignity and seeks justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.

June's Theme is

Humility

If we are to reimagine the Common Good, then we must support the cultivation of humility. Its opposite, arrogance, is a recipe for selfishness and a race to the lowest common denominator and common good. In the West, humility has not been a virtue. In the East, it is central to Buddhism and Confucianism. In Buddhism, humility is implicit in the concept of right view and right intention. Confucian emphasis on modesty and respect for others are central humility. Philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre highlights humility as being crucial for moral development and living in community. Humility promotes collaboration, emphasizes integrity and accountability, counteracts selfishness and entitlement, and cultivates a culture of respect and inclusion. All of these are necessary to forge the Common Good with others.
