The Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) hosted the annual "Stuff TheBus" Back to School Supply Drive from July 22, 2022, through August 22, 2022.

The Stuff TheBus drive has provided an opportunity for the County and its various partners to assist students in preparing for the academic year with brand new bookbags and essential classroom supplies.

Since 2018, DPW&T has received significant donations from County government agencies, County staff, the Prince George's County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and the Prince George's County Community Partners to assist with this effort. Despite the pandemic, the (2020) "Stuff TheBus" resulted in over 1,100 backpacks, drawstring bags, and over 12,600 items such as pencils, pens, and crayons. Last year, the drive and distribution (2021) garnered over 1,000 backpacks, tote bags, and 22,000 various school supply items.
