Fill the Bus! 2019

The Center for Community Engaged Learning (formerly the Center for Service-Learning & Civic Engagement) invites you to take part in the 11th annual MSU Fill the Bus event during Fall Welcome 2019 (August 19th - August 29th)! 

Did you know that some students in Greater Lansing lack the basic resources to make the most of their educational opportunities? Who will help address the problem of educational resource inequality in our community? 

Since Spartans strive to embody the MSU idea of "education for others", let's start this year off right and "Fill the Bus" by donating school supplies for those in need in our community. Small donations make BIG impacts: that extra notebook, folder, pack of markers, or other items you give, combined with those of thousands of MSU students and staff, helps to make the beginning of the school year brighter for local children and their families. Last year, we collected nearly 120+ bags full of school supplies for area partners! While that's impressive, we think we can do even better...will you help us top that amount this year?

There will be bins in all five neighborhood engagement centers for those without a team.
