The Stuff the Bus Foundation is proud to announce the addition of Joye Beth Spinks to the Stuff the Bus Foundation Board of Directors. She is an associate at English Lucas Priest & Owsley, LLP (ELPO Law) in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and is a native of the Southern Kentucky area.

After serving four years as a high school educator, Spinks pursued a career in law attending Boston University School of Law, where she worked for the Chairperson of the Joint Committee for the Environment, Natural Resources, and Agriculture in the Massachusetts Legislature. She joined ELPO Law fulltime in 2019. Joye Beth Spinks is a proud graduate of Warren East High School and is excited to serve her community through her new role with the Stuff the Bus Foundation.

Stuff the Bus began in 2005 with an event hosted by local radio personality Tony Rose along with a dedicated group of volunteers who lived inside school buses until they were filled with school supplies that were then donated to kids in over ten counties. Over the next decade and more, hundreds of tons of school supplies were given directly to schools, children, and families as a result of the efforts of Stuff the Bus. As the needs of the area grew, those involved with Stuff the Bus realized their impact needed to grow as well. From this, the Stuff the Bus Foundation was formed in 2018.

The Stuff the Bus Foundation evolved the efforts of the four-day event into an organization working to impact the lives of children throughout Southern Kentucky – not just at back to school time, but throughout the year. The Stuff the Bus Foundation’s focus remains on “leveling the playing field for children in South Central Kentucky.” Every item and dollar collected stays local to assist children, teachers, and classrooms across the region.
