Synergy Bank and United Way of South Louisiana are coordinating our 8th annual school supply drive to benefit local children and schools during the month of July.

The supplies collected will be distributed to schools in both Terrebonne and Lafourche Parish for students to use.

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 - 29 and deliver to Terrebonne and Lafourche Parish School Districts in time for the 2022-2023 school year!
