Stuff the Bus for Project Topeka February 4, 2023!
TOPEKA, Kansas (January 23, 2023) -- Topeka Metro and the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) #1360 are reaching out to the Topeka community to "Stuff the Bus" with non-perishable food items as well as cash donations to benefit Project Topeka, the community food drive to defeat hunger.
When: Saturday, February 4th, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
Where: Entrance at Fairlawn Dillons/Parking Lot – 21st & Fairlawn, 5311 SW 22nd Place
Topeka Metro and ATU members will be on site February 4th to accept donations and will load them on a Topeka Metro bus at the Fairlawn Plaza Dillons store. Shoppers are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items to be distributed through Project Topeka. Cash donations are also welcome. We all have been affected by the current economy; however, even one can or non-perishable item helps those in need! Click here for a copy of the Stuff the Bus flyer with info.
In the past, the Stuff the Bus project has collected nearly 2,500 pounds of food and we hope to top that goal for our community this year. Immediately after the event is over, ATU members will transport the food to be weighed and hand them any donations. As always, 100% of the food collected stays in Topeka and Shawnee County. We invite you to come help us STUFF THE BUS!
