Pasadena ISD is teaming up with the City of Pasadena and the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce to brighten the back-to-school experience for thousands of local students this year.  Affectionately dubbed, “Fill the Bus”,  the collection effort includes online giving, daily donation opportunities, a Chick-Fil-A Spirit Night (July 30) and culminates with a celebrated drop-off day on August 1 when a 72-passenger yellow school bus will be parked in front of City Hall on 1149 Ellsworth Dr, Pasadena, TX 77506.

Planned for drop-off day: Mayor Jeff Wagner, PISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. DeeAnn Powell and Chamber President Cristina Womack will be on hand at various times to personally receive supplies and thank donors. Several large donations from local businesses are expected to be trucked in. This is the second year for the Fill the Bus initiative. Last year’s goal of filling one bus was eclipsed by donations that filled three large yellow school buses.  

New this year: Don’t have time to shop or swing by City Hall? No problem! An online donation portal has been established to make supporting Pasadena students easier than ever. Donate anytime by going to:  RightGift. 

School Supplies Needed:

#2 Pencils
