DART Celebrates 20th Anniversary of “Stuff The Bus”

Thanksgiving Food Drive, November 6 to 11,

to Help Delawareans in Need of Food Assistance

 

DART today announced their 20 years of partnering with the Food Bank of Delaware for the annual “Stuff The Bus” Thanksgiving Food Drive.  In celebration of its 20th anniversary, DART’s goal is to collect 20 tons of non-perishable food for Delawareans in need of food assistance.  We need the public’s help to achieve our goal.

The “Stuff The Bus” food drive starts on Monday, November 6, ending on Saturday, November 11.  New this year, we’ll be at the Acme in Rehoboth on Monday, November 6 and the Acme in Middletown on Saturday, November 11.  The public is invited to stop by the bus at any of the seven collection sites with their nonperishable food donations to help “Stuff The Bus”.

The Food Bank of Delaware is a nonprofit agency committed to ending hunger in Delaware.  According to the Food Bank, annually 1 in 8 people in Delaware rely on the Food Bank’s partners and programs for food assistance and 25% are children.
