Synergy Bank, United Way of South Louisiana, and H.O.P.E. Ministry of Pointe Coupee are coordinating our 10th annual school supply drive to benefit local children and schools during the month of July.

The supplies collected in the Bayou Region will be distributed to schools in Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes, while supplies collected in the Capital Region will be distributed to schools in Pointe Coupee Parish.

Thanks to the support of our generous community, the Pack the Bus School Supply Drive has donated tens of thousands of school supplies to our local students over the years. We are proud to partner with local businesses and civic groups to help students excel and thrive.

Please see below for a list of most needed school supply items and drop off locations. We will collect supplies from July 1 - 26 and deliver to Terrebonne, Lafourche, and Pointe Coupee Parish School Districts in time for the 2024-2025 school year!
