annual events

Each year, Planting the Seed Foundation holds several events designed to raise awareness of our mission, generate donations of school supplies and holiday toys, and encourage financial gifts that helps us to run our organization.


JULY 16 – AUGUST 17, 2022 | STUFF THE BUS!


This week, Planting the Seed Foundation, would normally be contacting businesses in the city for assistance with our Stuff the Bus program. Stuff the Bus annually provides school supplies to the students in the city that need them the most. This year we are offering door-to-door delivery of donation boxes right to your location.

For those businesses that are not able to display a donation box but would like to contribute virtually, please check out our wish list on Amazon. You can also make a cash donation in the name of Planting the Seed Foundation on either Venmo or Paypal.
