2021 Stuff the Bus Community Giveback Title Sponsor

With the 2021-2022 school year having students returning to in-person learning and as our schools have evolved, we’re returning to our roots as a Community School Supply Drive!

We will be updating our supply needs list as the summer progresses and new needs for the new school year become clearer. But remember, no donation is too small!

  • Donations can be made Mon – Fri at Bravo Mic Communications, 101 Perkins Dr, Las Cruces NM 88005
  • Donations Can be Made at ALL Live Broadcast Locations from 6/10/21 through 7/29/21: We’ll be broadcasting live on location this summer throughout Las Cruces with our community partners to collect supplies for LCPS- so be listening with 101 Gold, Zia Country 99.5, Magic 104.9, La Equis 96.7, or AM 1450 KOBE New Talk 96.7 FM for your opportunity to make a donation!

We’ll be returning with the STUFF THE BUS RADIOTHON ON FRIDAY JULY 30TH FROM 8 AM TO 5 PM where supplies will be dropped off on-location and witness the sweaty glory as we actually attempt to STUFF A BUS FULL OF SUPPLIES thanks to STS! Monetary donations will also be taken during the Radiothon via the Las Cruces Public Schools Foundation.
